Remembering Molly Blackburn

The death of Molly Blackburn in a car crash on December 28, 1985, was a major blow to the anti-apartheid struggle, particularly in the Eastern Cape, where she was most active. This is an obituary I wrote for her, which was published in the Evening Post, Port Elizabeth, on January 2, 1986.

I have had to scan it in two parts. The first three legs of the copy continue in the second section, so I'm afraid a bit of jumping around is needed. In order to see the text in full size, please press control and left click on the mouse. If you're using Google Chrome, new tabs will open. For those with poor eyesight, this is ideal as the print is good and large. For those with good eyesight, simply left click on the scanned texts.
