M.S. in Journalism and Author of “It’s A Black White Thing”

 

ABSTRACT: Donna Bryson's first book, 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 US. In her book, people with major parts in the story in both South Africa and the United States tell their stories from their own points of view.  Bryson will read from the book, discuss the reaction it has sparked in South Africa, and take questions. Light refreshments will be available.
