Rezension bezieht sich auf: Kaffir Boy: The True Story Of A Black Youths Coming Of Age In Apartheid South Africa (Taschenbuch)
Kaffir Boy, by Mark Mathabane, is the story of Johannas and his very interesting and inspiring childhood. It is hard to imagine that the events taking place in the book are true. The book is about Johannas, a black-African in South Africa. His life is faced with many challenges, most of which he overcame. Johannas' biggest problem and fear was the racism existing in South Africa. Much of the story is about his relations with white people and his education. In the ghetto of Alexandria, where he grew up, education was very expensive and the schools did not have all the staff and supplies that were needed. Johannas began playing tennis at a young age and persisted and protested about playing with whites. He was also under a lot of pressure from people, and did not get along well with his father. His parents and other black people in the ghetto also faced frequent raids by police with the objective of catching people with passes that are out-of-order. Neither of his parents had their passes in order, or legal papers to live where they did. His family was also poor and often borrowed money for food or searched in dumpsters. However, Johannas always kept up with his education and eventually it, along with tennis, brought him to America, the dream of almost any black South African.
