Kaffir Boy: An Autobiography--The True Story of a Black Youth's Coming of Age in Apartheid South Africa

Kaffir Boy: The True Story of a Black Youth's Coming of Age in Apartheid South Africa - Mark Mathabane Inspiring story of a gifted black tennis player dreaming of a better life but growing up in apartheid-era Republic of South Africa. Police state tactics (internal passports, frame-ups, etc) used against Mathabane and his family echo the same patterns seen the world over- in 1930's Germany against Jews, in 1970's Cambodia against all but the political ruling class, and in Soviet Russia. Sad.
