In The Dark With My Dress On Fire
- Our Price:
By Blanche La Guma with Luther College author Martin Klammer.
During the struggle to end apartheid, many women lived complicated and demanding lives as activists, wives and mothers. In the Dark with My Dress on Fire is the story of Blanche La Guma, who lived out her passionate commitment to justice, not on one or even two fronts, but remarkably on four: providing care as a nurse-midwife in poor communities, supporting her writer-activist husband Alex La Guma, raising two sons in trying circumstances, and operating as an underground activist in a clandestine communist cell.
