After trying for years to have a have a baby, young woman in Ermelo, South Africa considered it nothing short of a miracle when she gave birth to a son on August 3, 1964.
She aptly called the son Lucky. The baby, Lucky Dube, grew to be an international superstar and one of the strongest moral voices of apartheid South Africa. Lucky Dube was one of the most prolific, acclaimed singers. The dreadlocked singer was killed in a carjacking in Johannesburg, South Africa.
He will be remembered for his commitment to justice, his unshakeable faith of the power if individual to change the world
Audio Clips: Lucky Dube live at Rototom Sunsplas, Osoppo, Italy.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
