Freedom in Our Lifetime · The Collected Writings of Anton Muziwakhe Lembede
By Anton Muziwakhe Lembede · Edited by Robert R. Edgar and Luyanda ka Msumza

When a group of young political activists met in 1944 to launch the African National Congress Youth League, it included the nucleus of a remarkable generation of leaders who forged the struggle for freedom and equality in South Africa for the next half century: Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo, Walter Sisulu, Jordan Ngubane, Ellen Kuzwayo, Albertina Smith, A. P. Mda, Dan Tloome, and David Bopape. It was Anton Lembede, however whom they chose as their first president.

“This volume…enhances our understanding of Lembede and his thought…This book will be valuable to scholars with research interests in the history of African nationalism.”
