Rand Daily Mail, 1902-1985
The Rand Daily Mail, a Johannesburg daily, is a critically important title that pioneered popular journalism in South Africa. It is renowned today for being the first newspaper to openly oppose apartheid and contribute to its downfall. From its early beginnings in 1902, the Rand Daily Mail was known for its controversial yet courageous journalism. Despite significant pressure from the conservative government, its writers openly addressed issues that white readers knew little about. Now, decades later, this critically acclaimed title—and its wealth of unique perspectives on 20th century South Africa—is being offered as a fully searchable online resource containing articles, advertisements, editorials, cartoons, photographs, and more.
