Discover the Untold Stories of Apartheid Through Brave Truth
Fourteen years since fleeing South Africa, leading social commentator on authentic leadership in ethical performance, Geraldine Coy, has finally told her touching and confronting story on apartheid in South Africa, in Brave Truth.
The human atrocity that was Apartheid in South Africa has been well documented over the decades. However none are more compelling than the front line account told in Brave Truth.
Geraldine Coy's book, Brave Truth reveals a first-hand look at what it was like to live through the volatility of an apartheid world, and the aftermath that followed it.
As a member of a Commission of Enquiry that published a report on findings of violence and atrocities, Geraldine and her family received numerous death threats and consequently had to flee the country and settle in Australia.
Geraldine reveals, for the first time, uncensored stories of those who were there and the courage and determination that kept them going after facing unspeakable events.
Whilst this focus is unparalleled in its raw cruelty in the context of our current society, the story is set into the context of Geraldine's life.
Geraldine emerged in a new South Africa firstly as a student activist and matured into a mediator advocating peaceful resolution of conflict across all communities. Geraldine's own foreword to the book hints at the work she was involved in, and the people with whom she was so privileged to work.
"For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others" Nelson Mandela
"I have found that without the mutual obligation of us all to each other, to build a future based on respect for our rights; to live as we choose to live; to have a home which we can call a safe place; and the right to bring our children up in a world where their opportunities will be as broad as their dreams and as real as their efforts, we won't be able to take the next step toward this goal."
"I have tried to demonstrate that true compassion is a firm and rational decision made with sound reasoning, and does not falter even in the face of those who behave badly. That does not mean that I have ever shied away from the need for those responsible for bad behaviour to be held accountable in some form or another."
In this book, readers will be invited into the truth behind the real cause(s) of violence and the perpetration of terrible acts of retribution within communities driven by despair and poverty. The complexities of these communities, their history forged in the Apartheid regime, the values of their traditional leadership and the emergence of a new local order, thrown into a melting pot of controversy, all prevented the development of anything close to a safe society.
