Never intended for publication, Govan Mbeki’s prison writings, originated and were preserved in Robben Island prison. They were meant to be read by other prisoners. Their aim: to educate politically.
They are remarkable documents that provided activists with a distillation of practical lessons about political organisation, learned in the most testing conditions.
Learning From Robben Island: The Prison Writings of Govan Mbeki was compiled by Colin Bundy and published by Kwela Books, an imprint of NB Publishers
