Mainstream politics In Sobukwe achieved notoriety backing the Defiance Campaign. He was a strong believer in an Africanist future for South Africa and rejected any model suggesting working with anyone other than Africans, defining African as anyone who lives in and pays his allegiance to Africa and who is prepared to subject himself to African majority rule.

He defined non-Africans as anyone who lives in Africa or abroad Africa and who does not pay his allegiance to Africa and who is not prepared to subject himself to African majority rule. His strong convictions and active resistance inspired many other individuals and organisations involved in the anti-apartheid movement, notably the Black Consciousness Movement.

The organisation had been established on the university campus by Godfrey Pitje, who later became its president. In Sobukwe was appointed as a teacher at a high school in Standerton, a position he lost when he spoke out in favour of the Defiance Campaign in He was, however, reinstated. In after moving to Johannesburg Sobukwe became a lecturer of African Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand. He strongly believed in non-racialism. He was an ardent supporter of Africanist views about liberation in South Africa and rejected the idea of working with Whites.

Internment On 21 March , the PAC led a nationwide protest against the hated Pass Law which require black people to carry a pass book at all times. Sobukwe led a march to the local police station at Orlando, Soweto, in order to openly defy the laws. In a similar protest on the same day in Sharpeville, police opened fire on a crowd of PAC supporters, killing 69 in the Sharpeville Massacre. Following his arrest, Sobukwe was charged with and convicted of incitement, and sentenced to three years in prison.

After serving his sentence, he was interned on Robben Island. The new General Law Amendment Act was passed, allowing his imprisonment to be renewed annually at the discretion of the Minister of Justice. Sobukwe was the only person imprisoned under this clause. Robben Island imprisonment Sobukwe was kept in solitary confinement but permitted certain privileges including books, newspapers, civilian clothes, bread, etc. He lived in a separate area on the island where he was strictly prohibited from contact with other prisoners.

His only contacts with them were through his secret hand signals while outside for exercise. Despite this, he succeeded in giving his approval to the external PAC to adopt a Maoist political program.

He studied during this time and received among others a degree in economics from the University of London. It is speculated that Sobukwe was subjected to this special treatment because the South African government had profiled him as a more radical and difficult opponent than the regular ANC prisoners.

Throughout his imprisonment, Sobukwe maintained communication with his friend Benjamin Pogrund who later became his biographer Sobukwe and Apartheid, Johannesburg: J.

Ball, Kimberley: internal exile Sobukwe was released in He was allowed to live in Kimberley with his family but remained under house arrest.

Kimberley was suggested as an area where he could not easily foster subversive activities and also a place where he could live and work, while being easily monitored by the state. He was also restricted through a banning order, which disallowed political activities.

Various restrictions barred Sobukwe from travelling overseas, thus curtailing his attempts to further his education. For this same reason, he had to turn down several positions as a teacher at various locations in the United States.

Sobukwe completed his law degree with the help of a local lawyer, in Galeshewe, and he then started his own practice in in Kimberley. Illness and death Due to lung cancer, Sobukwe was hospitalised in His doctors requested that the authorities allow him freedom of movement on humanitarian grounds. This request was refused indefinitely.

He died on 27 February , and was buried in Graaf-Reinet on 11 March Boddy-Evans, A.
