Published on the eve of the centenary of the founding of the African National Congress, this book has come at a most appropriate time. This is a biography of John Dube, the second son of early Christian converts, James Dube and Elizabeth Namazi Shangase, who had come to live on the famous mission station Inanda, founded in 1857 by Daniel Lindley of the American Zulu Mission (AZM). James Dube, who was originally from the Qadi chiefdom headed by his father, Chief Langalibalele, under King Shaka, was ordained pastor by Lindley in December 1870.
