dc.description.abstract iv Abstract This dissertation endeavors to study Peter Henry Abraham's novel Mine Boy in order to investigate how race and social class distorted the lives of many Black South Africans. This work pays special attention to a black main character who is a miner who struggles to discover the significance of his life and to analyze how black people are treated badly as a result of their skin color ,and how do Race and class affect their lives .The results of this research have revealed that race determines one‟s social class , one‟s fate and class position, so white people gave themselves the opportunity to oppress blacks who have accepted the racist discrimination without any an objection or an attempt to make a change, Additionally Abrahams manipulates the character of Xuma to convey the readers and the society and call them to revolt against the racial discrimination that the blacks were living in by telling the story of Xuma who was able to get rid of his blackness and class position which were the main cause of being oppressed and he was able to fulfill his of making the black voice heard after many struggles. en_US
