This memoir is the story of a black woman, Katie Makanya. Born in 1873, Makanya refused a chance of wealth and fame as a performer to marry and raise a family in her native South Africa. There she lived through the days of apartheid until 1955, triumphing over all hardships and finding her calling as interpreter and assistant to a white doctor named James McCord.
MARGARET McCORD grew up in South Africa. KATIE MAKANYA asked her to record this true story.
