A full biography of the founding president of the African National Council (ANC), this account uncovers the inspirations for John L. Dube’s many public achievements. Tracing the history of his forbearers in the Zulu kingdom, this volume chronicles the politician’s life from his birth in 1871, and highlights his many achievements, including the founding of the Ohlange School, the key role he played in the Bhambatha Rebellion, and the authorship of the first Zulu novel. As it evaluates Dube’s five-year presidency of the ANC, this book shows that in spite of the many conflicts and ambiguities in his position, Dube’s central political belief that Africans should be directly represented in the parliament of the land remained remarkably constant throughout his long career.
