It started with a question about the blues: what makes the music of the downtrodden black man so alluring to white middle-class ears? And that's where it gets interesting. Because blues is more than a musical genre: it's a cultural phenomenon that spans several centuries on both sides of the Atlantic, from slavery to Black Lives Matter, from Jan van Riebeeck to Fees Must Fall, from Robert Johnson to Abdullah Ibrahim.
In Blues for the White Man, Fred de Vries looks for answers in America's Deep South, drawing historical parallels with South Africa's experience of colonialism, slavery, racism, civil war, segregation and protest. Travelling to Atlanta, Memphis, Nashville, New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta, De Vries speaks to musicians, Black Lives Matter activists and Trump supporters. He continues the conversation in South Africa, interviewing student protesters, white farmers and political thought-leaders to develop an understanding of white supremacy and black anger, white fear and black pain.

A fascinating, insightful journey through time and space, Blues for the White Man is a celebration of multiculturalism and a plea for white people to do some 'second line dancing' for a change.

'Wat het ná 1994 van die Afrikaner geword? Hoe lyk dié eens magtige groep vandag en het hulle nog enige rol te speel in die nuwe Suid-Afrika?
Met 'n tas vol vrae reis Fred de Vries van Orania na Pretoria om met uiteenlopende Afrikaners te praat: politici (FW de Klerk, Pieter Mulder), musieksterre (Steve Hofmeyr, Bok van Blerk, Fokofpolisiekar), sakemanne (Jannie Mouton), skrywers (Koos Kombuis, Antjie Krog) en selfs 'n vakbondleier ( Flip Buys).
Hy ontmoet ook talle gewone Afrikaners - boere, polisielede en onderwysers - wat iets oor die siel van die Afrikaner aan hom verklap. Vir almal vra hy dieselfde vraag: is daar nog plek vir dié wit volk aan die suidpunt van Afrika en indien wel, waar is hul emosionele tuiste - hul Nkandla - in pres. Jacob Zuma se woorde?
