Today it’s National Sporting Heritage Day, and we’re blogging about one of our collections which is particularly relevant to this.
Dennis Brutus Collection
Dennis Brutus was a South African human rights activist, sports campaigner against apartheid, and poet. He is perhaps best known for his campaign to have apartheid South Africa banned from the Olympics in the 1960s. His collection here at Brunel includes personal and professional correspondence and a large collection of newspaper cuttings on sport and apartheid in South Africa.
