Bernedette Muthien talks to the Kokkedoor: Vuur en vlam chef Nate Smith, Kay Karriem, former editor of Kuier, and Tessa Dooms and Lynsey Chutel, young authors of Coloured: How Classification Became Culture, about coloured communities that are often scorned as “not black enough or not white enough”, and the misconception that they have no distinct heritage or culture. The book reveals the distinctiveness of culture that developed as a result of a traumatic past and the ways in which it is celebrated today in everything from language to food and music.
