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. The Struggles for Freedom in Southern Africa Collection brings together materials from various sites throughout the world and makes them available online to students, teachers, and researchers, both in Africa and outside the continent. By providing sample materials, the Collection also publicises the rich collections of partner institutions, helping make them more widely known to researchers.
The Struggles for Freedom project is a collaboration of more than 100 prominent scholars, senior archivists, museum specialists, and engaged public intellectuals throughout the Southern African region and the world. The project is guided by regional and national committees, and supported by formal partnerships with many institutions. Click here for access to the Collection.
