This website is dedicated to Lord Bob Hughes, founding Chair of the AAM Archives Committee and former Chair of the Anti-Apartheid Movement, and Mike Terry, former Executive Secretary of the AAM, who had the vision to ensure that the archive of the AAM was preserved so that its story could inspire future generations to continue the fight against racism and injustice and build a more equal and sustainable world.
