UJ Library in partnership with UJ Sport and the Transformation Unit invites you to a discussion with Caster Semenya on her book: The Race To Be Myself by Caster Semenya In this book, Caster speaks openly about growing up in a loving family and community that never regarded her as different, just Caster; of her early years understanding her agency, sexuality and athletic ability; and of her infectious spirit and tenacity to be the best. Told with conviction and humour, The Race To Be Myself is the story of a life lived in the spotlight, a manifesto for acceptance and change for all. This is the unforgettable story of one of the most recognisable
athletes in the world, and of a woman’s journey to run free.
