Burdened by race Coloured identities in Southern Africa

by Mohamed Adhikari

Burdened by race Coloured identities in Southern Africa Synopsis

Burdened by Race showcases recent innovative research and writing on coloured identity in southern Africa. It brings new levels of understanding to coloured self-identification and manifestations of colouredness across the region, using interlinking themes and case studies from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi to present analyses that challenge and overturn much of the conventional wisdom around this identity.

Burdened by race Coloured identities in Southern Africa Press Reviews

This is a valuable contribution to the literature on an identity that continues to be susceptible to marginalisation in post-apartheid South Africa. It is also both a useful resource for scholars engaged in research in this field and accessible enough to appeal to potential readers beyond academia. -- Historia (October 2012)
