Oral history interview with Saro Naicker (wife of M P Naicker) and Barbara Wahlberg.

She reveals details about her own arrests and imprisonments during the Defiance Campaign and how harrassment by the special branches eventually forced her and MP to seek refuge in London.

The Passive Resistance Campaign, Treason Trial and Rivonia Trial are also subjects raised during the interview. Naicker concludes the conversation by sharing her lasting impressions of Luthuli and Nokukhanya.
