A RAINBOW IN THE NIGHT The Tumultuous Birth of South Africa

by | Read by Stefan Rudnicki

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

South Africa's history glittered with diamonds and gold but suffered from the inequalities of its people. Apartheid, a system of legal racial segregation, appeared there in the 1950s, banishing “coloreds” to the bottom of society. Narrator Stefan Rudnicki's deep voice rumbles with an announcer-like resonance as he reads the encyclopedic introduction without animation. However, with the appearance of important characters like black activist Nelson Mandela and white supporter Helen Lieberman, Rudnicki becomes more charismatic. Delivering the author's inspiring narrative, his voice portrays the opposing emotions of both the inhuman cruelties experienced by the downtrodden and the proud excitement of Dr. Christiaan Barnard's first-ever heart transplant. Because of the universality of ethnic struggle, this audiobook would make an excellent resource for students of human rights. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2010]
