"On a drive through some particularly dramatic mountains, this happened: in the car were the Coffee Farmer, his Assistant, and I. We were going up a steep hill. In front walked a young black woman. She was very pregnant, had a baby on her back, held a small child by the hand. ... I knew that the two men had literally not seen this woman. 'How about giving her a lift?' ... I knew we would not be giving her a lift. ... Wrangling, we drive slowly up the steep hill past the pregnant woman. ...Since then an obvious thought has added itself ...: no one was likely to give this woman a lift. Certainly not the new [black] rulers of the country, flashing about in their great cars, their motorcades. Perhaps some local missionary, or a doctor ... everywhere in the world this peasant woman, with one (or two) babies inside her, one on her back, one or two clutched by the hand, is slowly walking up a mountain, and we can be sure that few people see her." (p. 136-7)
