Best-Selling Author Dr. Mark Mathabane's Presentation At Ferris State University
In this video, best-selling author and lecturer Mark Mathabane came to Ferris State University to speak on a variety of topics as part of the Arts and Lecture series.
Mathabane has touched the hearts of millions with his powerful autobiography, Kaffir Boy, which tells the true story of his coming of age under apartheid in South Africa. The book won a prestigious Christopher Award, rose to No. 3 on the New York Times best sellers list and to No. 1 on the Washington Post best sellers list and was translated into several languages. Today, Kaffir Boy is used in classrooms across the U.S. and is on the American Library Association's List of "Outstanding Books for the College-Bound."
