Abstract:

2013-07-15

What does it mean to be Coloured in post-apartheid South Africa and how can Coloured identity be defined within this democratic setting? During apartheid, Coloured people were not considered white enough. Post-1994, we are not considered black enough. I come from a family that lived through apartheid, where the philosophy of black consciousness ignited an identity of ‘blackness,’ which remains the core of my Coloured identity. This essay considers how Coloured people have to redefine themselves post-1994 by reaching beyond the definitions imposed by the apartheid regime. By sifting through my own family history, I begin the process of deciding what to embrace and what to leave behind, pasting together a collage of cultural clippings that can begin to define my Coloured identity.
