Rosemary Smith found herself in Grahamstown at a crucial point in South Africa’s struggle. Joining the Black Sash – an organisation of which she later became national vice-president – she was thrust into the middle of a country convulsing into a transition to democracy. Swimming with Cobras (2012) is a memoir of her journey
