United Democratic Front (UDF), Don’t Vote in Apartheid Elections! 1984. Offset litho poster produced at the Screen Training Project (STP) and printed at Sham’s Printers, Benoni, near Johannesburg. UDF logo designed by Carl Becker and Fazel Mamdoo; artist(s) unknown. The UDF strongly opposed what was described as the apartheid government’s “new deal”, which involved the establishment of a racially segregated tricameral parliament as a way of reforming apartheid. The poster calls for a boycott of the tricameral elections of August 1984. Collection: CHR/UWC-Robben Island Museum Mayibuye Archives

The CHR in the time of a global pandemic

In line with protocols introduced by government towards the prevention and containment of the COVID-19 virus, the CHR suspended its public events, seminars, and general fellowship program until further notice.  We wish CHR fellows, students, artists, colleagues and friends, as well as our partners and funders in South Africa and across the world much strength and compassion in these difficult times.
