Apartheid isn't over, so Malaika Wa Azania boldly argues in Memoirs Of A Born Free, her account of growing up black in modern-day South Africa. Malaika has experienced what she calls 'institutionalized racism,' apartheid's legacy in the so-called Rainbow Nation. Recounting her upbringing in a black township racked by poverty and disease, the death of a beloved uncle at the hands of white police and her alienation at multiracial schools, she evokes a country still held in thrall by de facto apartheid. An important new voice in South African activism.
