Description Oral interview with Duma Nokwe (1927-1978) who was Secretary-General of the ANC from 1958 to 1969. Born to working class parents in Evaton, he studied at St. Peter's School in Johannesburg, Fort Hare, and the University of the Witwatersrand, where he pursued law. In 1956 he qualified as the first African advocate in the Transvaal. He also belonged to the underground Communist Parrty. From 1956 to 1961 he was a defendant in the Treason Trial. Banned, detained and in 1962 house-arrested, he fled South Africa in early 1963. He occupied leadership positions in the exiled ANC until his early death in 1978
