1912 – A Revolution Is Born

The organization known today as the African National Congress was founded on January 8, 1912, under the original name of the South African Native National Congress. The birth of the ANC required cooperation between differing tribes, and religious groups who shared the goal of liberating Black South Africans from colonialism and racial oppression.

This year, South Africans will commemorate the birth of the organization that helped usher the country towards an inclusive democracy with a series of celebrations held in the city of Mangaung. —Naeesa Aziz
