Founding Fathers of the African National Congress
The robbery of African land and the pass laws were the main factors that led to the formation of the ANC on 8 January 1912. Its national anti-tribal character reflected the need for every stratum and sector of African society. In 1914 an ANC delegation consisting of (left to right) Dr W. Rubusana, T. Mapikela, Rev. J. L. Dube, Sol Plaatjie and S. Msane, visisted Britain to put their protest before the British government and public.
