Scope and content

Livingstone High was established in 1926, primarily because parents in Claremont/Harfield Road protested that there was no high school in the area for children classified coloured and African. Livingstone continued this ethos of political resistance to apartheid policy and was at the forefront of student uprisings in the 1970s and 1980s. Richard (R.O.) Dudley was a veteran anti-apartheid educationalist and life president of the New Unity Movement; he was also principal at Livingstone during his academic career. This series of interviews with colleagues of R.O. Dudley concentrates on his time as principal of Livingstone High School and his life as an anti-apartheid activist. Themes include: historical background of the school; impact of politics on teaching; key figures; life history; New Unity Movement; political affiliations; socio-political background; unrest during the 1980s.
