Chabani Manganyi has been afforded the rare opportunity in South African art publishing of a second edition of an earlier biography, published in 1996 under the title of A black man called Sekoto. This was inadvertently necessitated by the discovery, after Sekoto's death, of a 'suitcase of treasures' that contained previously unknown musical compositions, letters and a large quantity of notes, writings and private documents. Changes in the new biography are evident from the outset, most significantly signalled in the sub-title, 'I am an African'.
