Moiponi is fourteen and has a dream: to become a majorette. It’s more than a dream, it’s a challenge because her home town is Soweto. The town that experienced years of revolt, violence and repression. Thousands of victims... and just as many funerals that turned into celebration. To allow the dead to leave this world with dignity, to console the families and the womenfolk, the coffins were accompanied by singing and dancing children. They were known as the Soweto Majorettes. The struggle is now over. But the majorettes are still there, taking part in every aspects of Soweto life: weddings, funerals, birthdays, celebrations.
