‘The black and white days’ By Marshall Makhubo

In the days of the apartheid era 1904, a young adult falls in love with a person he shouldn’t fall in love with based on the judgement of the society.

Their love relationship is challenged and their parents do not approve of their relationship, Yolanda and Wayne do whatever it takes to be together and they go as far as leaving their families to start a new life together.

Yolanda and Wayne decide to stand against the law that has been set up by their government because they believe a person should feel free to fall in love with any person of their choice.
