Local Memories of the Anti-Apartheid Struggles: Rediscovering the ‘People’s Democracy’

P. 66-81.

In the following chapter, the author presents some of the findings of the research project conducted in South Africa from 2011–2013, which was aimed at rediscovering people’s memories of township struggles of the 1980s. The research analyzed life stories and memories of direct involvement in community structures and self-rule in townships. In this text, the author uses a series of in-depth interviews to analyze the notions of ‘people’s democracy’ and different understandings of peoples’ self-organization of the abovementioned period.
