"The Old Chief Mshlanga." Doris Lessing.

One-minute review: Africa. A young girl walks about her large farm that had been taken over by whites from the black natives who once lived on it. The whites treat the blacks as servants and people to tease and humiliate and then she meets the dignified old man, Chief Mshlanga. She learns from him to treat the blacks as fellow human beings. Part of the story is the description of the beauty of Africa. A heart-warming story of race relations.
