Abstract: Formed in 1894 by Mahatma Gandhi to fight discrimination against Indian traders in Natal, the Natal Indian Congress (NIC), together with the Transvaal Indian Congress and the Cape Indian Congress went on to form the South African Indian Congress (SAIC). Although never banned, harassment of its leadership and repressive conditions brought an end to its activities, which were only revived again in 1971. This collection mainly reflects the activities of the organisation since its revival in 1971.
