Sizwe caught up with author Jamil F. Khan to get the latest on his forthcoming book, Khamr: The Makings of a Waterslams. He also shared some liiit views on SA politics!

Jamil F. Khan is a scholar, columnist and author. He is currently enrolled for a PhD in Critical Diversity Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand. His work looks at the experiences of Coloured people in South Africa through the lens of creolisation theory.

With Khamr: The Makings of a Waterslams, Khan hopes to set the tone for an honest and critical conversation around Islam, Colouredness, middle-classness and queerness. It is an attempt to lift the shame from so many who live outside of the lines of normativity and respectability, and to repatriate this shame to the oppressive power structures that constrain people’s lives in the name of tradition and ritual. At 30 years old, Khan challenges the notion that young voices have no shape or place to articulate the experiences of a historically unjust and unequal South Africa and clearly shows what value can be excavated from such voices, which are often buried alive.
