South African Border Wars

South African Border Wars

Much has been written about the South African Border war which is also known as the Namibian War of Independence. While the fighting was ostensibly about Namibia, most of the significant battles were fought inside Namibia’s northern neighbour, Angola. South Africa’s 23 year border war has been almost forgotten as the Cold War ebbed away and bygones were swept under the political carpet. South African politicians, particularly the ANC and the National Party, decided during negotiations to end years of conflict that the Truth and Reconciliation commission would focus on the internal struggle inside South Africa. For most conscripts in the South African Defence Force, the SADF, they completed matric and then were drafted into the military. For SWAPO or UNITA or the MPLA army FAPLA it was a similar experience but defined largely by a political awakening and usually linked to information spread through villages and in towns. This was a young person’s war which most wars are – after all the most disposable members of society are its young men. Nor was it simply a war between white and black. IT was more a conflict on the ground between red and green. Communism and Capitalism. The other reality was despite being a low-key war, it was high intensity and at times featured by unconventional warfare as well as conventional. At times SADF soldiers would be on foot, walking patrols or SWAPO on foot, launching attacks across the border. But there were motorised heavy vehicles, tanks, artillery, air bombardments and mechanised units rolling into attack each other. For some that was a nightmare, for others, freedom. At times youngsters from the suburbs of Pretoria or Durban were fighting experienced soldiers from Russia and Cuba. For veterans the territory would come to be known as “Nam” as the experience replicated the American experience in Vietnam to some extent.

Beyond the Breakers

Beyond the Breakers

Beyond the Breakers is a podcast about loss and lessons learned at sea. My goal is share a topic that I have been captivated by since I first heard Gordon Lightfoot's "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" as a child: why do ships sink? Through this podcast I hope to provide a wide range of stories. Some will consist of legends or tales handed down from the golden age of sail. Others will be from the "black and white" age of still photography and telegraph. Perhaps most terrifying are the stories that are told in full color and through modern communication. It is my hope that I will be able to share captivating stories of human survival while also highlighting what we have gained from so many tragic losses at sea. Additionally, although this is a serious topic that will always be treated in a respectful manner, there will be plenty of opportunity for humor along the way.

West End Stories Project

West End Stories Project

The West End Stories Project captures the experiences of individuals who lived in Cincinnati's West End during the second half of the 20th century for urbanites today who want to know more about the neighborhood’s transformation. Cincinnati’s West End was once a vibrant community full of people, opportunities, and excitement. But due to urban renewal projects in the 1950s, the historic West End was largely razed for the creation of interstate I-75 and housing projects. This, combined with segregation, white flight, and redlining decimated this predominantly Black community, and the community still hasn’t recovered. Today, gentrification and other development projects are forcing many longtime residents out of the neighborhood again. If you or someone you know lived or spent a significant amount of time in the West End, please consider sharing your story. Contact Keloni Parks, host of the show and manager of the West End Branch, at 513-369-6900 or email westend@cincinnatilibrary.org for more information.
