Oral history interview with Khatija Suleman (wife of Goolam Suleman) and Barbara Wahlberg.

This interview takes place during the publication stage of the Suleman manuscript. Discussion subsequently focuses on relationships between Goolam Suleman and Luthuli and the two families.

Khatija also discusses the concern and worry she experienced when Luthuli, E V and her husband held secret meetings at Liberty Storess. She elaborates on the role Suleman played in supporting Luthuli's activities. The final section of the interview centres around the production of the manuscript by Suleman and Naidoo.
