The House of Bondage is the dwelling-place of the black people of South Africa, whose bitter life is one of the tragedies of our century. Ernest Cole has lived the tragedy as an inmate of the House for most of his twenty-seven years. A remarkably gifted photographer and an eloquent spokesman, he...exiled himself to expose the harsh realities of his homeland. From his unique vantage point, Cole sees every aspect of South Africa's degradation with a searching eye and a passionate heart.
