As a young boy, Warren Bam would watch his father head to work as a truck driver on the farm nearby. One day, he decided, he would join him, but as a farmer. Yet, the color of his skin meant he would be breaking the law. Non-white South Africans were dispossessed of their land under the Natives Land Act. Under this law and apartheid, a policy of institutionalized racial segregation and discrimination in South Africa between 1948 and 1991, Warren was not allowed to own a farm or study agriculture. He spent 14 years waiting for the right opportunity to present itself.
