apd30. Press Under Apartheid
South Africa’s English language press played an ambivalent role under apartheid, with most media rooted in the white community and only exceptional newspapers, like the Rand Daily Mail, speaking out against apartheid. Even so, the National Party government enacted a barrage of legislation to ensure that journalists did not step out of line. This pamphlet examines apartheid press censorship. It was one of many published by the International Defence and Aid Fund (IDAF) and distributed by the Anti-Apartheid Movement.
