Reclaiming the Soil

A Black Girl’s Struggle to Find Her African Self

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


An extraordinary story of cultural confusion and the long way home to a black girl’s emotional
roots. David Robbins

The Rosie Motene story is about a young girl born to the Bafokeng nation during the apartheid era
in South Africa. At the time, Rosie’s mother worked for a white Jewish family in Johannesburg who
offered to raise the child as one of their own. This generous gesture by the family created many
opportunities for Rosie but also a trail of sacrifices for her parents. As she grew, Rosie struggled to
and her true identity. She had access to the best of everything but as a black girl she floundered
without her own culture or language. This book describes Rosie’s journey through her fog of
alienation to the belated dawning of her self-discovery as an African.
