University of Natal, South Africa’s Struggle for Democracy: Anti-Apartheid Periodicals, 1960-1990

URL: http://disa.nu.ac.za. The title of the DISA (Digital Imaging South Africa) project is South Africa’s Struggle for Democracy: Anti-Apartheid Periodicals, 1960-1990. The national co-operative digital imaging project covers the three key decades in the growth of opposition to apartheid rule in SOuth Africa, a period when the African National Congress (ANC), black consciousness, and other resistance movements were very active. Approximately forty periodical titles have been selected from a very comprehensive list, with a view to presenting not only a wide spectrum of political views published during these years, but also a diversity of subjects such as trade unions, religion, health, culture, and gender. Publications reflecting both black and white viewpoints are included, and an attempt has been made to represent distinctive regional variations. Some of the publications were short-lived and, by necessity, of limited distribution. These factors lend a certain rarity value in that the publications are generally not well represented in research collections.
