Inside this Book – An orphaned Masarwa girl comes to Dilepe to teach, only to discover that in this remote Botswana village her people are treated as outcasts. In the love story and intrigue that follow, the author’s exploration of racism draws upon her own experiences of growing up in South Africa.
Inside this book –Maru PDF Book by Bessie Head – This year I am participating in a women of color reading challenge, which has allowed me to read books by female authors from around the world. Recommended to me was Bessie Head, one of Africa’s leading women authors. In her novella Maru first published in 1971, Head writes about the classism, racism, and sexism that exist in Botswana. Using the story of a Masarwa teacher to tell her tale, Head shows her readers the hierarchy of life in the tribal village of Dilepe. With her mother’s passing at her birth and father’s deserting her, Margaret is orphaned as a baby.
