African Women: Three Generations

by Mark Mathabane

"This gripping saga by the author of Kaffir Boy presents a truthful, passionate, and illuminative biography of his great-grandmother, grandmother, and mother in South Africa. Mathabane vividly describes the shocking, heartbreaking stories of each generation of women as they struggle for independent incomes to support themselves and their children; while resisting apartheid, they must also resist the traditions imposed by their own society and the oppresion imposed by their men. The stories are an inspiration and tribute to millions of women worldwide in similar conditions. A thought-provoking book that is sure to deliver a strong message all who read it."--From Libary Journal
