African women : three generations by Mark Mathabane( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stories of Florah, Geli, and Granny are told in their own words in alternating chapters that demonstrate how similar are the problems faced by each generation: all three women discover the need for an independent income in order to care for themselves and for their children; all three are the victims of the traditional assumption that women are property, commodities bought and sold by men; all three suffer from the terrible hardship imposed not only on women but also on black men by the system of apartheid in South Africa
Miriam's song : a memoir by Miriam Mathabane( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mark Mathabane first came to prominence with the publication of Kaffir Boy which became a New York Times bestseller. His story of growing up in South Africa was one of the most riveting accounts of life under apartheid. Mathabane's newest book, Miriam's Song, is the Story of Mark's sister, who was left behind in South Africa. It is the tale of a woman - representative of an entire generation - who came of age amid the violence and rebellion of the 198O's and finally saw the destruction of apartheid and the birth of a new and democratic South Africa. Mathabane writes in Miriam's voice, based on stories she told him, but he has re-created her unforgettable experience as only someone who also lived through it could. The immediacy of the hardships that brother and sister endured - from daily school beatings to near-overwhelming poverty - is balanced by the beauty of their childhood observations and the true affection that they have for each other. Miriam emerges as both an innocent child drawn into the war against apartheid and a strong woman forever changed by the struggles, brutality, and politics of the world around her."--Jacket
