Skin is the heartbreaking true story of Sandra Laing (played by Sophie Okonedo) as a woman with black skin born to white parents in apartheid S.
Found this rare interview with Sandra Laing. Her life story was made into a move called, SKIN and I remember seeing the premiere in Washington DC in April 2009. Unfortunately it is not so popular as a narrative in South African schools. Even the book, written by Judith Stone, When She Was White, is still, up till today, not a big read in South Africa. We still persist in using Harper Lee’s, To Kill a Mockingbird, as a prescribed text for English Language for Grade 12s in the country for the themes that Laing’s life could far better address.
