WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

My Children! My Africa! by Athol Fugard examines the power of learning and the potency of words, ideas and hope in a time of heightened political and social unrest. Mr. M., a dedicated black teacher in a segregated township, is determined to pair his most gifted student with an enthusiastic white schoolgirl in an English literature competition. As the drilling for the competition advances and growing public resistance leads to school boycotts, friendships become colored by impassioned debates, and the three characters struggle to find understanding amidst South Africa's racial and social divides. The issues of peaceful resistance and debate versus violence as a means to produce social change continue to raise questions that endure today, despite the collapse of the apartheid system.
