Description Africa South, a journal edited by Ronald M. Segal (1932-2008) was launched in Cape Town in 1956. The journal was published quarterly while funds were available. The last and final publication was issued in 1961. Ronald M. Segal claimed to be a socialist, and was an anti-apartheid activist who crossed the South African border into exile in 1960 with the African National Congress leader, Oliver Tambo. Views and opinions were expressed in Africa South regarding the movements for freedom, discrimination and the struggle for liberation. The articles were related on issues of interest to the masses, the liberals, the communists and the socialists. Subjects covered issues around the church and the state; the political situation in South-West Africa; Central Africa to North Africa, discussions around their revolution and independence and occasionally covered current events in countries outside of Africa. Africa South also featured short-stories by some well-known authors such as Alan Paton; adding some light-heartedness to politics were the cartoons by various artists such as David Marais; and included book reviews. Various events such as the bus boycotts, political trials and the Sharpeville uprising were featured.
