Critic Reviews for Mama Africa
Like many biographical documentaries, it resembles a lengthy highlight reel of crucial events from its subject's life, without much in the way of style or perspective.
This queen deserves a monarch-sized portrait that fully showcases her part in the tumultuous social, political, and cultural movements that reshaped the world around her.
Mama Africa shows how Miriam Makeba was the antithesis of a diva. Right up until her death in 2008, she was a woman who cared too damn much.
Worth watching as a compilation of the great singer's songs but even more worth watching as social history from the heyday of the civil rights movement to Black Power to the end of apartheid.
