Abstract


Historiese navorsing het tot dusver nie regtig die hoë - profiel leiers se assosiasie met hulle besittings of woonplekke wat 'n beduidende rol in die erkenning van sulke leiers speel, gehanteer nie. In die Vrystaat, veral in Bloemfontein, het die "Mapikela-huis" vanaf die 1920s tot die1940s 'n betekenisvolle rol gespeel om die ANC gewild te maak. Die Mapikela-huis is derhalwe ook bekend as die "ANC-huis". Hoewel bewerings gemaak word dat hierdie huis die plek is waar die ANC in Januarie 1912 gestig is, betwis die artikel hierdie aanname.

Historical research has not yet clearly dealt with the association of high - profiled leaders with their belongings or properties which sometimes play a significant role in acknowledging such leaders. In the Free State Province, specifically in Bloemfontein, the "Mapikela House" played a significant role in popularizing the ANC in the 1920s to the 1940s. The Mapikela House is commonly known as the "ANC House". Although many assumptions are made that this house was the founding venue of the ANC in January 1912, this article, however, disputes that assumption.
