looking back on the black sash

The history of the struggle against apartheid can not be written without taking into consideration the history of The Black Sash, a women’s organization set to struggle against the apartheid-system in South Africa.

The history of this organization, started in 1955, has been written by Mary Burton. Here you find more about her book.
