From the Publisher
Annotation "Kaffir" is a derogatory term for black people in South Africa and a epithet that Mark Mathabane had to endure many times growing up under the cruelties of apartheid. His powerful memoir KAFFIR BOY's publication in 1986 stunned the world with its vivid and intimate portrayal of the injustices of South Africa's racial policies. One of the first books to use a first-person account to describe the black experience under apartheid, KAFFIR BOY became an international bestseller and helped rally the world's outcry against South Africa's racist social system. The book's success did not come without a cost--two of Mathabane's brothers-in-law were shot to death by police, possibly in retaliation for his progressive political autobiography, a work as significant to South African civil rights as Frederick Douglass's autobiography was for American liberties.
