The James Mange Story: Freedom Fighter and Climate Justice Advocate

James Mange

It was during his time at Robben Island that he converted to Rastafari, growing his dreadlocks and became the first prisoner in South Africa to refuse to cut his hair. He formed a reggae band called the Whiplashes and they would perform in prison on special occasions.

On his release from prison he formed his own political party, The Soccer Party [Sports Organization for Collective Contributions and Equal Rights] participating in the 1994 democratic elections.

He continued to be actively involved in music organising the Reggae Moonshine Africa Festival and launched it with an event dubbed: A Night of Political History with James Mange in Johannesburg and has recorded and released over 10 albums which are available on all digital platforms.
