Dust on his Soul Jason Blacker
The Story of One Man’s Journey to Hell and Redemption Hell does have a name… Robben Island. This story, though fictional, is inspired by, and honors, the life - and death - of Stephen Biko. It is the 1970s and 80s in South Africa. Some cruelly and sadistically wielded power meant to scourge. Some broke under its weight, while some remained unbent, immovable under it, resolute of spirit, and ultimately, triumphantly, indomitable. This is the story of such a man. A character study of an unconquerable heart, an unyielding spirit. This is not a story for the feint of heart or stomach. It is a story, not meant to shock, but to shine the unapologetic, unflattering light of truth on a situation that was, and is very real.
