Abstract:For ninety-five years the remains of Nokutela Mdima Dube lay ignored in the Brixton Cemetery in Johannesburg (South Africa). Similarly ignored were her contributions to the founding and development of a critical set of institutions - the Ohlange Institute, the Inanda Seminary, the Ilange lase Natal newspaper and the African National Congress - as well as to Zulu chorale music and the valuation of the education of women. Upon her death at age 44 in 1917, Nokutela, the estranged first wife of ANC-founder John Dube, was interred without individual marking in the section of the cemetery marked 'C.K.' ('Christian Kaffir'). The filmmaker, Professor of French and Francophone Studies at Carleton College (US), set himself the task of finding her grave and bringing together the far reaches of her family, while making her contributions and story more widely known by erecting a proper monument and making a film about Remembering.
