Oral history interview with Logan Naidoo by Barbara Wahlberg.

This interview is roughly divided into two sections. In the first half Naidoo provides autobiographical information, focusing particularly on his teaching career, and historical background information. He reflects on Luthuli's relationship with the Stanger Indian community and specifically with E V Mahomed and Goolam Suleman. Interesting details are revealed about topics discussed between these three over tea. Reaction to Luthuli being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and rumours surrounding his death are key topics on which Naidoo elaborates.

The second part of the interview concerns more specifically the production of the manuscript by Naidoo and Suleman, including the process by which it was written and additional research performed by Naidoo. The significance of the manuscript as the story of an ordinary man's contribution to the struggle is also dicsussed.
