He was the heir to an African kingdom. She was a white English insurance clerk. When they met and fell in love, it would change the world. This is the inspiring true story of Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams, whose marriage sent shockwaves through the establishment, defied an empire - and, finally, triumphed over the prejudices of their age. 'Reading the book, I realised that I had never seen an African love story of this cinematic scope. It spoke to me as an African, as a man, as a romantic' David Oyelowo 'A story of forgiveness and healing ... as relevant today as when the whole drama was being played out' Alexander McCall Smith 'Unmissable ... A love story for the ages ... One of the best films of the year' Daily Mail 'Irresistible storytelling' Guardian 'Genuinely moving ... Fascinating and timely' Time Out

Download and read online The Colour Bar Classic Reprint in PDF and EPUB Excerpt from The Colour Bar The white woman who gives herself to a black man is denounced by all of her own colour in Africa, but most loudly by those white men who have not themselves been faithful to their own race. For as in the beginning when the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair and took them wives of all which they chose so also in our own times when the sons of Europe descended upon Africa they often took concubines from among the Natives of the country but they never allowed their own women who followed them to mate with the men of the lesser breed. It was so also among the Natives before the whites came. From old Natives one may still hear of what befell some of the men of the tribes indigenous to the country that is now Rhodesia when they dared to aspire to the favours of women of the invading Matabele. I remember an old man with whom I had been discussing this subject who said sententiously as if the matter did not admit of any argument, "The women belong to the men who take the country, the men who are beaten can only take women of their own tribe." It has always been so. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
