is brought to you by Aluka, an international, collaborative initiative building an online digital library of scholarly resources from and about Africa.
The struggles for freedom in Southern Africa were both a regional and global phenomenon. As such, documentation of the struggles is scattered around the world, reflecting the history itself: colonial rule, dispersion of exiles, international intervention, and worldwide networks that supported successive generations of resistance within the region.
This collection brings together materials from various sites throughout the world and makes them available online.
By providing sample materials, the Collection also publicises the rich collections of partner institutions, helping make them more widely known to researchers.
At present, the Collection consists of more than 180 000 pages of documents and images, including periodicals, nationalist publications, records of colonial government commissions, local newspaper reports, personal papers, correspondence, UN documents, out-of-print and other particularly relevant books, oral testimonies, life histories, and speeches.
