Leaflet advertising an event with Dumisani Kumalo on March 22, 1979 at Woodland Street Community School. The leaflet says Kumalo worked as a journalist in South Africa since 1965 for The Post Newspapers, Drum magazine, The World, and as chief reporter for the Johannesburg Sunday Times Extra (Black edition). As a journalist, he exposed conditions of black migrant workers in the mines, use of child labor on farms, abuses of police power, and deaths in detention. The leaflet says he flex South African in June 1977 following police harassment. He is a founder of the Union of Black Journalists, an organization in the Black Consciousness Movement that was banned by the South African government in October 1977. He also is author of a soon-to-be-published autobiography.
