TITLE: Freedom & Justice: The 100th Anniversary of the African National Congress
DATES: January 13 through May 5, 2012
LOCATION: Library, 1st floor, 624 S. Michigan Ave.
In concert with this year’s Critical Encounters theme of Rights, Radicals, and Revolutionaries, this exhibit “Freedom & Justice: The 100th Anniversary of the African National Congress” celebrates the centennial of the African National Congress (ANC), the African national liberation movement formed in 1912.
In 1994, after decades of resistance and frequently violent conflict, the ANC enjoyed a decisive victory when citizens voted in the country’s first national election and chose ANC candidate Nelson Mandela as President of South Africa.
The African National Congress (ANC) exhibit contains material from the Chicago Anti-Apartheid Movement Collection housed in College Archives & Digital Collections at Columbia College Chicago.
