Abstract

A scientific-historical literature review was undertaken in order to place the history of physical education and physical culture in the Coloured community at the epicenter of research. This review was extracted and adapted from research done in preparation for a doctoral dissertation. A broad range of approaches, from Coloured denial to works challenging , was covered during the review. Consequently, three themes were identified during the review. First, Coloured people were omitted from South African physical education and physical culture history. Then, Coloured people were portrayed as marginal figures and finally they are represented in literature that may be classified "analytical critique". The review revealed that there is no available formal academic research of physical education and physical culture practices focussing solely on the Coloured community in South Africa. There is, however, a large corps of academic and popular literature honing in on White South Africans. In order to correct this discrepancy, an extensive literature review of published and unpublished works was conducted. The works were placed in scientific-historical context so as to present a coherent narrative of Coloured people and their relationship to other population groups in South African physical education and physical culture history.
