Freedom-fighter Indres Naidoo, a "Coloured" of Indian ancestry and a member of the African National Congress of South Africa, served a ten-year sentence on Robben Island as a result of his political activities...[this] is his story, as he himself tells it : the only full-scale first-hand account of life in the prison, a school for revolution in South Africa today"--Cover

Forgiveness : a time to love and a time to hate( Visual )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This layered film by acclaimed filmmaker Helen Whitney, addresses the act of forgiveness, a theological principle central to all major religions, but more and more frequently an issue that is hitting the fractious streets. Its new role in the world raises serious and complex questions: why is forgiveness in the air today; what is its power, and what are its limitations and in some instances its dangers; has it been cheapened or deepened ... or both? The film gives insight into the presence and absence of forgiveness illustrated in a wide range of stories from personal betrayal to genocide. Among them: the spontaneous demonstration of forgiveness following the 2006 shooting of Amish children in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania; a savage and senseless attack on two young female campers, and the struggle of a '60s radical to cope with the consequences of a violent act of protest that turned deadly

Defiant images : photography and apartheid South Africa by Darren Newbury( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photography is often believed to witness history or reflect society, but such perspectives fail to account for the complex ways in which photographs get made and seen, and the variety of motivations and social and political factors that shape the vision of the world that photographs provide. This book develops a critical historical method for engaging with photographers to try and understand how they viewed the work they were doing, and examines the place of photography in a post-apartheid era. Based on interviews with photographers, editors and curators, and through the analysis of photographs held in collections and displayed in museums, this research addresses the significance of photography in South Africa during the second half of the twentieth century"--Cover

We, the people : insights of an activist judge by Albie Sachs( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This stirring collection of essays and talks by activist and former judge Albie Sachs is the culmination of more than 25 years of thought about constitution-making and non-racialism. Following the Constitutional Court's landmark Nkandla ruling in March 2016, it serves as a powerful reminder of the tenets of the Constitution, the rule of law and the continuous struggle to uphold democratic rights and freedoms. We, the People offers an intimate insider's view of South Africa's Constitution by a writer who has been deeply entrenched in its historical journey from the depths of apartheid right up to the politically contested present. As a second-year law student at the University of Cape Town, Sachs took part in the Defiance Campaign and went on to attend the Congress of the People in Kliptown, where the Freedom Charter was adopted in 1955.
