If you have been moved by the death of Nelson Mandela, you may wish to know more about the struggle against apartheid both within and outside of South Africa. The U.K. was a country that saw a decades-long Anti-Apartheid Movement, with many exiled South Africans making their home in Britain and leading the campaign.
We hold a wealth of Anti-Apartheid material in our museum and archive collection and some objects relating to Mandela himself including badges, posters and photographs.
We will be holding a Snapshot event about the Anti-Apartheid movement in our Archive during Spring 2014, bringing out our collection of photos, but if you would like to see any photos or read any material about it before then, why not contact the museum’s archive to make an appointment to learn more? Please let us know before you come so we can get the material out for you, on 0161 838 9190.
