Abstract

The chapter contrasts anti-apartheid people's histories and post-apartheid nationalist biographies, focusing on the exemplary work of Luli Callinicos -- her people's histories of the Witwatersrand in the 1980s, her biographical studies of Oliver Tambo in the 1990s and 2000s, and the 2016 play on her early people's histories, 'If We Dig'.
