Mark Mathabane married a white American woman and struggled with a different set of race relations as a result. He and his wife co-authored a book call Love in Black and White about the struggles that mixed race couples encounter in the U.S.

Although Mark saw America as the promised land – a land without racism – he discovered remnants of apartheid here in the United States. You can learn more about Mark's experiences in America in Kaffir Boy in America.
