From Protest to Challenge rescues from obscurity the voices of protest in South Africa through the publication of rare documents housed in the collections of the Hoover Institution Library & Archives. These excerpts from political ephemera, radical newspapers, and other materials provide a documentary history of opposition groups in South Africa. They bear witness not only to a remarkable period in South African history but also to the vital need for the preservation of historical documents as an essential tool of scholarship. These materials are as relevant today as when they were first published, graphically demonstrating the South African struggle for peace, freedom, and equality. Volume 2 covers the years 1935 to 1952, a period framed by the All-African Convention, arranged in response to proposed legislation limiting the rights of native Africans, and the launch of the Defiance Campaign protesting apartheid laws.
