My Race is the memoir of a gifted Jewish athlete growing up under the apartheid system of South Africa. Lorraine Lotzof Abramson shares her unique vantage point on the apartheid experience. She provides a first-hand account of her growing unease with the system of social inequality that simultaneously excluded her and celebrated her.
