In this episode, Heather Hughes (University of Lincoln) discusses her new biography of John Langalibalele Dube, founding president of the African National Congress. As the centenary of the ANC’s existence approaches, Hughes sheds light on Dube’s rich connections to the United States; his educational work and political beliefs; and the previously overlooked history of Nokutela Dube.
