PODCAST: De Bijbel

Like our country, many of us in South Africa have complicated histories. Our ancestral backgrounds are almost always a mix contradicting the simple apartheid era classifications of Indian, black, white and coloured.

For many of us, these classifications are simply not enough, we need to know where we’re coming from, so we’re able to move on. In this story, Candice Nolan tries to find the answers she is looking for by looking in an old bible.

Sound Africa is supported by the Open Society Foundation’s Project for Independent Journalism and Hindenburg Systems. Every two weeks another episode will be released here and on Soundafrica.org.
