Handout on The Calling of Katie Makanya. Katie Makanya is a remarkable autobiographical account of the life of a black woman from South Africa, born in 1873. Beautifully written, it is an outstanding reading for discussion of the issues involved in the contact between European and non-European cultures, from the late 19th century to the mid-20th century. I have used it as supplemental reading in my Western Civilization course. Katie Makanya is available in paperback from John Wiley publishers.
