Kaffir Boy, Mark Mathabane

“Kaffir” is South Africa’s “n-word.”

This is an autobiography of a Black youth’s coming of age in apartheid South Africa. It is a triumph of the human spirit over unspeakable degradation and hatred.

The book talks about the brutality of the apartheid system and Mark Mathabane’s escape from it. By embracing education, he was able to rise from destitution and despair.
