Steve Farrah shows what it is to be neither nor in the bad old days of South Africa’s apartheid regime. This memoir speaks for so-called Colored, who sought to carve out their identity while the struggle raged between the majority of Black Africans and the minority with European ancestry. When I taught African history in Lesotho and South Africa, Colored students stood up boldly and asked Who am I? Who are we? Farrah give them voice. Anyone who wishes to understand today’s complex South African nation and society should read this book.
