An account of the evolution of Black Sash from a mass middle-class organization concerned with the survival of parliamentary democracy into a cadre of about 1,200 white women self-exiled to the fringes of their society by their advocacy of racial integration. Candid about the women's ambiguous position vis-à-vis black racial consciousness, and objective about both their moral victories and political defeats.
