Overview

Frank Chikane, one of the leading figures in the Christian resistance to apartheid, recounts his life-beginning with his childhood, growing up black under apartheid, and continuing through his call to Christian ministry. He tells of his family's increasing involvement in the struggle against apartheid, of disapproval and suspension from his own church. He relates a harrowing story of escalating harassment, detention and firebombing, torture and exile-and his return, despite death threats and further detention, to South Africa to continue the fight. Through it all, one thing is clear: Frank Chikane is a man whose faith compels and sustains him in a courageous and selfless journey toward freedom.
