Richman Bongani Mahlangu grew up in a black township outside Durban, South Africa. He was lucky to be a great tennis player. And so, just as the struggle over Apartheid was at its height, he was able to use his talents to escape first to Europe and then the United States. In his book, "Zulu Dreams" he tells the story of his life in South Africa and his success as a tennis player, which allowed him to fulfill his American dream.
