WALTER & ALBERTINA SISULU (article first published : 2003-04-20)

Recently launched by Adams Booksellers is Walter & Albertina Sisulu - in our lifetime, published by David Philip Publishers.

Written by journalist and academic Elinor Sisulu, daughter-in-law of Walter and Albertina, it tells the compelling story of a couple who together embodied the struggle for freedom in South Africa.

As Secretary-General of the ANC, Walter Sisulu was sentenced with Nelson Mandela to life imprisonment and spent 26 years behind bars. Albertina continued to play a crucial role in keeping the ANC alive underground. They endured persecution, hardship and many years of separation, borne with patience, hope and enduring love.

In our Lifetime is their unforgettable biography, packed with intimate glimpses and thought-provoking insights. Educated in Zimbabwe, Senegal and the Netherlands, Elinor Sisulu has a background in history, English Literature, development studies and feminist theory. In 1994, she published an award-winning book The Day Gogo went to vote. She is a member of the Advisory Committee of The Centre for the Book (in Cape Town) and an Executive member of the South African Children's Book Forum.
