The collection gives an insight into the history of the PAC and black consciousness as well as providing a first-hand picture of Sobukwe, one of South Africa's greatest anti-apartheid figures.

It contains extensive correspondence between Sobukwe and Pogrund and Sobukwe and his wife Veronica, as well as photographs and publications, some of which were research material for Pogrund's book 'How can man die better...Sobukwe and Apartheid'.
