African women : three generations by Mark Mathabane( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,078 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 950 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

The Lessons of ubuntu : how an African philosophy can inspire racial healing in America by Mark Mathabane( Recording )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, The Lessons of Ubuntu, Mathabane draws on his experiences with racism and racial healing in both South Africa and America, where he has lived for the past thirty-seven years, to provide a timely and provocative approach to the search for solutions to America's biggest and most intractable social problem: the divide between the races. In The Lessons of Ubuntu, Mathabane tells us what each of us can do to become agents for racial healing and justice by learning how to practice the ten principles of Ubuntu, an African philosophy based on the concept of our shared humanity. Mathabane shows how Nelson Mandela used the language of Ubuntu, as the author calls it, to rally blacks and whites to abolish apartheid peacefully in South Africa. He also shows how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. practiced the principles of Ubuntu during the battle to eradicate Jim Crow in America -- and how the universal teachings of Mandela, Dr. King, and others such as Bishop Desmond Tutu and Mahatma Gandhi can help us heal the racial divide."--

Kaffir boy by Mark Mathabane( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The classic story of life in apartheid South Africa. Mark Mathabane was weaned on devastating poverty and schooled in the cruel streets of South Africa's most desperate ghetto, where bloody gang wars and midnight police raids were his rites of passage. Like every other child born in the hopelessness of apartheid, he learned to measure his life in days, not years. Yet Mark Mathabane, armed only with the courage of his family and a hard-won education, raised himself up from the squalor and humiliation to win a scholarship to an American university. This extraordinary memoir of life under apartheid is a triumph of the human spirit over hatred and unspeakable degradation, for Mark Mathabane did what no physically and psychologically battered "Kaffir" from the rat-infested alleys of Alexandra was supposed to do--he escaped to tell about it
