My Children! My Africa! by Athol Fugard
It’s 1985, the height of the student uprising against the government’s oppressive apartheid system. Passionate teacher Mr. M inspires an unlikely pairing for an English competition: brilliant black student activist Thami and privileged, down to earth white Isabel from a neighboring school. Loyalty and friendship are put to the test when external forces prove stronger than the walls of the Karoo classroom and the students loudly cry: Is this education power or is it oppression?
