Archie Mafeje was offered a post as anthropology lecturer at UCT. The offer was then rescinded as a result of government pressure. 1968 was a year marked by student protests across the globe. The "Mafeje Affair" was the spark that ignited student anger at UCT, resulting in South Africa's own "1968 moment".
In acknowledgement of International Banned Books Week, we have created an exhibition showcasing materials held at UCT Libraries during Apartheid, that was banned and unbanned under the Publications Act. We invite you to register online and join us at the opening on Friday 21 September from 12h00-13h00 in the Library Foyer.
