UPDATED ON Dec. 5, 2013: RIP, Nelson Mandela. Many thanks to all who helped us crowdsource this collection.
March 30, 2013: My 9.5yo kids and I were listening to "Gimme Hope Joanna" by Eddy Grant, a song they know is about Johannesburg and Apartheid. Nelson Mandela was hospitalized yesterday at 94 and we are thinking of him. They wanted to know other anti-Apartheid songs, so we started curating this list of songs by/about/inspired by South Africa.
