I became friendly with the London representatives of the African National Congress of South Africa, particularly Robert Resha and his sidekick Raymond Kunene, an accomplished poet. Neither of these men wanted to be in politics. Robert really wanted to be a sports writer, but repeated arrests for not carrying his passbook had forced him into political action in self-defence.

Such an interesting story. I loved it. It's getting readers -- but no one is discussing it.

It is an interesting story.
But it's complete and doesn't seem to require any feedback. Unless we were there, what's to discuss?
