Paul Joseph and other anti-apartheid campaigners leaving Pretoria Central Prison, August 1960

Holden Lecture 2022

Featuring the Paul and Adelaide Joseph Archive
Tuesday, 7 June 6:30 - 7:30pm (BST) via Zoom

This year, the Friends of Senate House Library are delighted to be able to present a discussion of one of the newest acquisitions of the Library, the Paul and Adelaide Joseph Archive. The event will take place virtually over Zoom. Please see below for joining instructions. 

The Archive documents much of the South African anti-apartheid struggle. It also contains several letters and cards from Nelson Mandela, posted from Robben Island Prison. The Archive was donated by Paul and Adelaide, and their family, earlier this year. More information on the Archive can be found on our website

We are delighted that Paul and Adelaide's daughter Nadia, an active social justice campaigner who was herself involved in the anti-apartheid movement, will join us to present the Archive in Conversation with Richard Espley, Head of Modern Collections at Senate House Library. Additional context will be provided in closing remarks from Dr Sue Onslow, Acting Director of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies

The online Zoom event will start promptly, so please join from 6:25pm.
