History

Lund Africa Group started in 1963 under the names "South Africa Committee in Lund" or "Lund's South Africa Committee". The purpose was to support the struggle against apartheid in South Africa. At the end of the 1960s the area of activity was widened to comprise even the other colonized countries in Southern Africa and the organization changed its name to Lund's Africa Group.

The main activity for many years was to edit the periodical "Africa Bulletin", which later became a magazine for the national Africa Groups of Sweden. Before 1967 the bulletin went under the name "South and South West Africa Information Bulletin". Other activities were i.a. demonstrations, lobbying, information work and fund raising for the liberation movements.

Quite a few letters to and from the liberation movements can be found in the correspondence series
E 1 A-C, as well as correspondence with other anti-apartheid movements in the world. Documents from international conferences are to be found in the series of subject related records, F 1-3.
