The Nordic Africa Institute


A small selection of photos can be found here. They haven’t been chosen for any specific reason but because they show some aspects of the Nordic support to the liberation struggle. In some cases the photographer has donated the material to the Nordic Africa Institute in order to safeguard the documentation. In other cases we do not know the photographer but we want to show an event, a meeting or a period in time that collectively paint the picture of liberation.

The pictures give an image to the archives. They illustrate the demonstrations and boycotts which were arranged; they give a face to the people who actively worked for a change in Africa.

The archival indexes of some organisations list photos found in the various repositories. Some of these photographs have been scanned. These photos can be found below under respective organization:

Coming soon! Some of the photographs will be released under Creative Commons licenses. For more information on each photograph, there will be detailed lists under each organization for referral.
