How it works


255 pages: portraits (1 as frontispiece). Paper covered boards, dust wrapper frayed along edges, faded & with small chips on spine. Cover subtitle: The autobiography of a great African leader, awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.     

Albert Luthuli (1898-1967) led the African National Congress for 15 years, during the period of the Defiance Campaign and the drafting of the Freedom Charter in 1957. Although finally acquitted in the five-year Treason Trial, he was banned and confined to the Lower Tugela magisterial district. He was awarded the 1960 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his peaceful resistance and leadership in the face of growing repression under apartheid.
