From the year that I finished grade 12 in 1993 till the present day I have been to University to study Fine Art, Philosophy, Psychology, Anthropology and the English language an attempt to see if that could provide answers for the millions of SA Blacks who live life of low self-esteem and being factory workers that only aspire to fulfil their perpetually bruised souls with material things -a false antidote. A book titled,"The Anthology of The Perplexed" -has been the result of my life-long learning done on the streets of South Africa....
