Albert Makaula was the son of a South African prince whose son became the first black footballer in Kent, England. Born in 1865, Makaula was of the Bhoca people in South Africa, but was poor as a child. He was adopted by a missionary named Charles White, and took his adopted family’s last name. Like his adoptive father, Makaula-White became a missionary. People would come from miles around to see him and his work. He married and moved to England in search of a better home for his family.
