President of UDF the late Archie Gumede

This Heritage Month, Independent Media is celebrating the 20 greatest women and men of KwaZulu-Natal. 

The focus is on iconic figures in the province, who through their activism changed the path of the Struggle against colonialism and apartheid. 

These are women and men whose legacy is an integral part of KZN's heritage. 

Each video interview is with someone who worked closely with the subject of the profile or an historian who has researched the individual.


Archibald Jacob Gumede was a South African anti-apartheid activist, lawyer and politician. He was a Parliamentarian, lawyer and member of the UDF and ANC.
