The collection contains the audio record and transcript of an interview with Chris Hani in 1992. The interview was taken by Reiner Leist as part of a series of portraits made between 1989 and 1993 in South Africa, which were published in his book "South Africa: Blue Portraits" in October 1996 by Nazraeli Press.
Included is the audio file of the interview; the transcript of the interview in 1992; the edited version of the interview in 1993; and a copy of the title page of the book publication.
The collection contains various published items, as well as a news clip with the obituary for William ('Bill') Sutherland, a stalwart in the Labour co-operative movement in South Africa, who resided in Matatiele, East Griqualand (n.d.).
The photographs are historical images of gold mining in South Africa, taken around the late 1800s to beginning 1900s. Many of the images provide a rare insight into the underground world of deep level mining on the Rand, showing miners at work, as well as mining structures and operations.
