Alan Paton (1903-1988) was a South African who spent decades fighting against the apartheid system. He was a founding member of the Liberal Party of South Africa and worked in it until it was banned by the government. He is most well-known today for his writing, particularly his novel Cry, The Beloved Country.

Today’s reading is from his third novel, Ah, But Your Land Is Beautiful, set in the time of the hated Pass Laws of the 1950s.
