We Are Too Old to Move, Where are we to go?': Forced Removals in Alexandra 'Oiling the Machinery': Recruitment and Conversion in Alexandra's Underground Movement Mobility and Camouflage in Alexandra's Underground Movement 'They Shouted Power': During the Student Uprising 'They Died Horribly': Celebrating the Lives Lost during the Student Uprising and Beyond Conclusion: David's Story
In this single square mile hemmed in by White areas, residents engaged in what is arguably the most multi-faceted, inventive, and versatile strategy of resistance during the 1970s. Apartheid on a Black Isle brings to the fore the definitive but underappreciated role that Alexandra played in advancing human rights. Using their manufactured space, Alexandrans revolutionized the South African freedom struggle by fertilizing the underground movement, by joining in solidarity with Soweto during the student uprising and by finding unique ways to grieve. This book explores and introduces ordinary Alexandrans whose narratives challenged preconceived notions of resistance, identity, gender and space.
