Google Doodle Honors South African author and activist Alan Paton.
"Cry, the beloved country, for the unborn child that is the inheritor of our fear." - Alan Paton.
Today Google honours the 115th birthday of author Alan Paton, writer and anti-apartheid activist who is known for his iconic book Cry, the Beloved Country.
The book, published in 1948, is a moving tale of racial injustice, human suffering, and redemption, as two fathers come to terms with the loss of their sons — one an accidental murder and the other, his unfortunate victim.
