Freedom Archives Excited to Launch New African Liberation Movements Collection

africa general resourcesThe Freedom Archives is excited to announce the availability of our newest collection, African Liberation Movements. This collection includes hundreds of original publications, solidarity materials, pamphlets, periodicals and images that chart the evolution of various African Liberation Movements throughout the modern era. This collection is an incredible opportunity to experience African Liberation through narrative, theory and reportage.

Some highlights include materials focusing on the liberation struggle in Zimbabwe (Chimurenga), a wealth of anti-Apartheid materials from various organizations and materials dealing with the role of women, both during independence struggles as well as during periods of national reconstruction.  Our collection also contains writings and publications from the Eritrean Liberation Front (ELPF), the Pan-Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC), the Congolese National Liberation Front (FLNC), the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) and hundreds more documents spanning a dozen African countries. This is an expansive collection that offers a unique view into the history, philosophy and discourse of African Liberation, Pan-Africanism, anti-imperialism and Black Consciousness.

Many of these documents have been digitized and the entire catalogue can be viewed online at:
