From the political ashes of the late 1960s, new and radical initiatives grew with surprising speed in the first half of the 1970s. The New Radicals: A Generational Memoir of the 1970s tells the story of a generation of activists who embraced and developed forms of opposition politics that would have profound consequences. The rise of Black Consciousness, the Durban strikes of 1972, the wages commissions and new trade unions, the development of radical ideologies separated from the liberalism and rigid communism of the past, the release all political prisoners campaign – and then June 1976. Within six short years, the politics of opposition and resistance had developed from an historical low point to the beginnings of a radicalism which would lead to February 1990 and the first democratic election in 1994.
