This paper provides an historical record of the racial structure of social work in Natal, 1 in 1991. The results of a descriptive study undertaken by the author at this pivotal time in South Africa's history are presented. Using statistical analysis, the author found that race was a significant factor in relation to the employment opportunities of black and white social work personnel in Natal. She also found that power in social work remained in white hands regardless of the race group served. The author concludes that the transformation of social welfare in Natal will only occur when the structural inequalities between black and white social work personnel are addressed.
