Sara Lidman (1923 - 2004) was a Swedish writer, agitator and human rights activist. She went to Johannesburg 1960, during the apartheid era. In February 1961 she was arrested under the immorality act, and later deported. Her book Jag och min son (Me and My Son)—a novel about racism, legalized theft, and power—came out later the same year.
Jag och min mor is a conversation between Anita Sandström (my mother, and at the time head of SAT, Southern African AIDS Trust), myself, and quotes by Sara Lidman.
