The Reading List and Penguin Random House South Africa have got three copies of The Man Who Founded the ANC: A biography of Pixley ka Isaka Seme to give away:
It is well known that the African National Congress was formed in 1912 and is considered the oldest political organisation on the African continent. What is often not widely known is that the person who founded it was one Pixley ka Isaka Seme, a thirty-year-old black South African from Inanda outside the city of Durban.
What is remarkable about Seme’s achievement in founding the ANC is not only that he succeeded where most had failed at forging black political unity. It is also the speed at which he did it.
The Man Who Founded the ANC: A biography of Pixley ka Isaka Seme examines Seme’s extraordinary life, from his humble beginnings to his triumphs and disappointments across the continents, in his public and private life.
