Search - List of Books by Mark Mathabane

Mark Mathabane (born Johannes Mathabane, 18 October 1960) is an author, lecturer, and former collegiate tennis player.

Mathabane was born in Alexandra, Gauteng, South Africa. As he explains in his autobiographical book Kaffir Boy, Mathabane survived the oppressive environment of the apartheid system by excelling at tennis and managed to earn a tennis scholarship to a school in the United States, escaping the brutal conditions of his homeland.{As detailed autobiographically in Kaffir Boy.}

In America, Mathabane changed his name from Johannes to Mark to avoid persecution by the South African government. Kaffir Boy helped to alert people in the United States to the cruelty of apartheid, especially after it was featured on Oprah Winfrey's talk show in 1985. Mathabane served as a White House Fellow under U.S. President Bill Clinton. Since the end of apartheid in South Africa, Mathabane continues to write books and articles that address human rights issues around the world. Until recently, Mathabane lived with his wife, Gail (b. Ernsberger), their three children (Bianca, b. 1989, Nathan b. 1991 and Stanley b. 1994), and his extended family in North Carolina. They relocated to Portland, Oregon in 2004, where he was formerly director of multicultural education at Catlin Gabel School.

Mathabane attended Dowling College in Oakdale, New York and then later studied at the Poynter Media Institute and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.
