Description DM2008102211:SAED:SOCIAL:POLITICS:WOMEN:MAY 1961 - Pietermaritzburg Conference - Fourteen hundred people have flocked to the talks. Living and being a delegate is hungry work, so volunteers step up to do peeling and cooking. Fourteen hundred delegates from all over the South Africa went to Maritzburg, where they sounded a new and powerful call for unity. The odds were all against success, and yet the outcome was a triumph, an indication of a new spirit of resolve which has emerged among the African people. Few meetings can have been preceded by so many unfavourable omens as the All-In Africa Conference at Maritzburg. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
