‪#‎colouredexcellence‬ celebrates inspiring stories

Film maker, Susan April is celebrating Heritage month with a fitting tribute. April is sharing positive stories of people of colour over her Facebook page on a daily basis.

Speaking to CapeTalk's Africa Melane, April says people of colour have very limited representation in the media and in history hence she is telling stories about them.

Very often what we see on TV is very limited and negative about coloured people. I just want to post something each day that we don't usually hear or see about coloured people.

Susan April, Film Maker

April says most of the stories she tells are stories she has learned from her parents and research. She has written about Zainunnisa "Cissie" Gool and has featured Alex La Guma, Dulcie September, Eddie Daniels, Sathima Bea Benjamin, Richard Rive and Herry die strand loper (aka Autshumato) and many others.
