Abstract:

Courage to Love in the Shadow of Hate. A Darker Shade of Pale tells of Beryl Crosher-Seger's family and community life in apartheid-era South Africa. With a piercing narrative, she details the injustices, humiliation and challenges she faced under the brutal 1950s reign of the National Party. Through her multi-racial heritage, Beryl was born into a life of inequality and hardship. This is the remarkable story of resilience and courage to power forward toward a better life, to love in the shadow of hate. A Darker Shade of Pale is a story of hope in the face of despair and of courage when faced with insurmountable obstacles.
