June Bam's peer-reviewed Ausi Told Me: Why Cape Herstoriographies was launched on 20 October 2021 with over 150 online attendees from different parts of the continent and world. The launch panel discussion was moderated by world renowned literature and languages scholar Professor Wangui wa Goro.
Leading Khoi and San historiography scholar Dr Yvette Abrahams described the scholarship in the book as seminal and path breaking in decolonising 'Khoisan' historiography. This book follows on Bam's co-edited peer-reviewed NIHSS award-shortlisted Rethinking Africa volume Whose History Counts: Decolonising Precolonial Historiographies with Ntsebeza and Zinn (2018) and Indigenous Women Re-interpret southern Africa's pasts (2021) with Muthien. All three books have been described by peers and scholars as ground-breaking in decolonial scholarship in southern Africa.
