n Historia - Fort Hare from the inside
Under Protest : The Rise of Student Resistance at the University of Fort Hare, D. Massey : book review

Volume 57, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0018-229X



Despite its fame, Fort Hare and its history has remained relatively little-studied, its sources under-used. There have been some attempts: a memoir-history by 1950s lecturer Donovan Williams, some official histories, and theses, but they do not plumb Fort Hare's complex past from the perspective of students. Recently, however, there has been a student's memoir, by Nomsa Mazwai, . Now Daniel Massey, who studied there in the 1990s and wrote an excellent Master's thesis on student politics, has revised and published it in the Hidden Histories series.
