The struggle against apartheid was understood often as a morality tale, with blacks on one side and whites on the other. The truth, however, was far messier.

Jacob Dlamini, winner of the prestigious Alan Paton award for notable works of South African non-fiction and assistant professor of history at Princeton University, spoke at Bowdoin about the role of collaboration in apartheid and specifically examines the role of black collaborators, raising questions about how we might historicize and understand other conflicts from around the world.
