Abstract:The first president of the ANC, John Langalibalele Dube, is well-known as the leading spokesman of his day of Natal's African Christian elite. This paper shows that Dube's entry into public life was predicated on his intimate association with the Quadi chiefdom elite, which was to provide critical support throughout his career. The matrix of relationships at the Inanda mission station, an American Zulu mission station in Natal founded in 1847, goes a long way towards explaining the key role that John Dube played much later, in the 1920s and 1930s, in brokering segregationist alliances between white and black interests. Notes, ref., sum.
