The first day of school
Hello ! I'm your teacher, Miss Mdingane and you will have a name and an English name
This is the custom among Africans in those days and is undoubtedly due to the British bias of our education
The education I received was a British education , in wich British ideas, British culture and British institutions
There was no such thing as Africans culture, this is unfair
Africans of my generation - and even today- generally have both and English and an African name. Whites are either unable or pronounce an African name, and considere it unciviliz to have one
Your new name is Nelson
Why this particular name ? Perhaps it have something to do with the great British sea captain Lord Nelson, but that will be only a guess
