Rosina Sedibane Modiba: A Dream Denied
As a young girl, Masegou could outrun all her fellow herders – even the boys – when they were chasing cows in the village. In rural Lebowa, Johannes could chase rabbits and catch them with his own hands…Running was always in the Sedibane blood – especially in that of their youngest daughter, Rosina. But for a black girl child born in apartheid South Africa, life was never going to be easy, and the country's laws were designed to stand in the way of individual success. This is the story of Rosina Sedibane, who, defying all odds, would grow up to be a record-breaking athlete in the 1970s – a star whose story wasn't told for over forty years.
