Leaflet advertising a talk by Lina Magaia on January 24, 1988 at Mt. Zion Baptist Church. Magaia was one of the first Mozambican women to receive a scholarship to study abroad. Following the Portuguese coup in 1974, she became active in Frelimo, and she later entered the liberation army and was present in Maputo when the Mozambican people triumphed in 1975. In 1980, Magaia was asked by the President of Mozambique to administer the "Green Zones" project which supplies food to the urban areas. She has regularly published articles in Mozambique's weekly Tempo, and her recently published book, Dumba Nengue: Run for your Life, chronicles the tragedy of war-torn rural Mozambique.
