interracial marriage

This week marked the 70th anniversary of the Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act, which was repealed in the 80s.

This week marked the 70th anniversary since the Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act was introduced, followed by the Immorality Act, which were both repealed in the 80s.

Joanne Joseph interviewed actress Mara Louw who, with her partner, overcame the law and entered a mixed-race marriage.

Joseph also spoke to Protas Madlala who married while the Immorality Act was still in place.

Between the two of us it was such a wonderful experience because it was love but the political environment was very hostile.

Protas Madlala, political analyst

I don't know where we got the courage.

When I first started dating this man who was from Scotland it was 1985, right in the middle of apartheid. So when he asked me for a date, we arranged to meet outside the Carlton Centre... we went into Mike's Kitchen and when we got in there, the manager realised we were a couple so he decided to make a plan, he put us at a corner table away from the eyes mostly of the whites.

Mara Louw, Actress and singer

For me, I just thought I am going to stick with this marriage, I am going to show you all because I didn't get married to Billy because he was white. I got married to a human being.
