It's a Black-White Thing, with Author Donna Bryson

Author Visits and Writing
2:00 pm
Meeting Room

It's a Black White Thing explores the struggle to get past racism in South Africa after apartheid, and parallels to the civil rights movement in the U.S. In 2008, the University of the Free State was thrust into the international spotlight when the racist Reitz video became public. Have South Africans changed in any significant way since 1994, or are black and white still constrained by racial stereotypes? This is the question American-born Donna Bryson asked herself when she went to investigate the tensions on the UFS campus culminating in this literary analysis.
