Mandela’s Children: Growing Up in Post-Apartheid South Africa

By Oscar A. Barbarin & Linda M. Richter

The gap between the hope for improved social conditions in post-apartheid South Africa and the grim reality of black life there is especially striking for South African children, who face serious threats to their health and development as a consequence of poverty, racism, violence, and social inequality. Mandela’s Children presents the contrasting conditions of “hope and peril” that characterize life in South African families, schools, and communities.
