Abstract

Throughout the trials and tribulations of the 1950s and 1960s, white anti-apartheid activists rose to the call of duty and took a stand against injustice, taking a stance that others refused to take. They threw themselves into the fire, serving jail sentences, going underground, and suffering great hardship as they separated from their families and friends. When imprisoned and exiled by the national government, they soldiered on, more resilient than ever. These activists provided an invaluable service to their country and to their fellow citizens of Africa, and many of their lives were forsaken for the cause. But above all, they achieved their aim: a free and democratic South Africa equal to all.
