I collaborated with Keleketla! Library, an interdisciplinary, independent library and media arts project based in Johannesburg. It was established in 2008 to engage youth through access to arts and media strategies as alternative education models and tools.

Published in 2014, 58 Years to the Treason Trial is Keleketla’s second publication in book format. It is an experiment that employs a multi-modal investigation into education realised with the vivid collaboration of school learners, educators, historians and cultural workers. It is a celebration of 6 years of work through the Keleketla! projects, and a reflexion on South Africa's journey since the 1956 Treason Trial, which saw key figures of the anti-apartheid struggle, including Nelson Mandela, sentenced for high treason, in the precinct occupied currently by the Keleketla! Library.

The book act as a reference for educators as well as a tool for learners to take an active part in comprehending the country's history.

’58 Years’ is supported by the National Heritage Council of South Africa and the Goethe-Institut.
