Voices from Cape Town Classrooms: Oral Histories of Teachers Who Fought Apartheid

Teaching in so-called Coloured schools, these &la" teachers with the fighting spirit stressed nonracialism and democracy in their work with students. Though their lives were deeply affected by apartheid, it never stole their hearts, minds, or souls. Their work helped lead to the election of Nelson Mandela as the first democratic leader of South Africa in 1994.
