Presley The Poet

Last year's breakout star Presley Chweneyagae (from the Academy Award winning film Tsotsi) is back in the spotlight making a brief guest appearance as "Poet" in the four part SABC mini-series When We Were Black, a love story set against the backdrop of apartheid. The mini-series began airing on South Africa's Youth Chanel on December 21, 2006 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the 1976 Soweto Uprisings. Here is Presley with some of his castmates:

If you blink you might miss Presley's role in the series, but it's definitely worth watching.
