FORTEIN, Eugene A.. Neither White nor Black: The Dutch Reformed Mission Church and the Colour Issue (1881-1982). Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2022, vol.48, n.1, pp.1-21. ISSN 2412-4265.

This study investigates the role and understanding of race, particularly "Coloured" identity on the formation and life of the Dutch Reformed Mission Church. Particular focus is given to how the DRMC has dealt with and responded to the colour issue since its inception. An attempt is made to indicate how the history of the DRMC and "Coloured" identity in South Africa are inextricably bound up together. More emphasis is placed on "Coloured" being perceived as neither White nor Black and how the initial critique from the DRMC comprised of "Coloureds" being "less" than White, but superior than Blacks. The study concludes with the influence of Steve Biko and the Black Consciousness Movement on the DRMC.
