BACKGROUND

my father's coatmy father's coatMY FATHER’S COAT is the realisation of Michael Charton’s decade-long ambition to make the incredible story, that is South African history, more accessible to our people. 

To open the hearts of South Africans to our past, so that we may use our story no longer as a tool to inspire hatred and fear and division, but rather as a source of unity and healing.

Accordingly, his idea was to condense the epic narrative of our country into a bite-size story which is both compelling and accurate. A monumental and time-consuming challenge, but one which has given rise to a very unique product, providing new order and meaning to a notoriously complex subject.

But importantly, this is no history lecture. Instead, this is a story. A human story told by climbing into the boots of five prominent, interwoven, protagonists spanning two hundred turbulent years: Mzilikazi, Kruger, Rhodes, Smuts and Mandela. Never before has our past been explored in this manner.

Michael’s passion saw him leave behind the life of a Chartered Accountant in order to make this project happen. This passion shines through in his delivery. For this is a unique life experience: An opportunity to reflect on our past and to

celebrate the fascinating peoples with whom we share this beautiful country.
