The love story that shocked the world – BBC News




When an African prince and a white middle-class clerk from Lloyd’s underwriters got married in 1948, it provoked shock in Britain and Africa. Seretse Khama met Ruth Williams while he was a student at Oxford University. After his studies, he was supposed to go home to the British Protectorate of Bechuanaland (now Botswana) and marry someone from his own tribe, but his romance with Williams changed everything. His family disapproved and Khama was forced to renounce his claim to the throne. The British government came under pressure to show its disapproval and Khama was exiled from his homeland. He later became the first president of Botswana when it became an independent country. Witness spoke to Ruth Williams’s sister about the love that conquered prejudice.

    I've noticed that black-white relationships are almost always a black man and a white woman, which is interesting. Why don't you see a white man and a black woman as much?

    I totally agree with you. race mixing is unnatural. people in the comment section trying to pretend that it is talking about "love has no color" like we don't know most interracial relationships end in divorce due to cultural differences.

    That's why Botswana has recently graduated from being a least developed country. A slave will always be a slave. The president of Botswana is a weakling.
