Edito : South Africa's changes were brought about by dedicated people and a long struggle. Gisèle Wulfsohn's picture of Frances Baard gives us the opportunity to learn more about her and pay tribute to her and others who committed themselves to the struggle for freedom and dignity for all South Africans.

Here is an excerpt from SAHO (South African History Online) a very interesting website which I will be adding to my favorites,

"Frances “MaBaard” Baard was born in 1901 in Kimberley, Northern Cape. She worked as a domestic servant and then as a teacher but became militant as a result of her experiences of oppression and exploitation in South Africa. As a budding activist she drew her influence from Raymond Mhlaba and Ray Alexander."

And on the same website you will find an autobiography by Frances Baard at: "My spirit is not banned"
