South African Pioneer in Education, Ms Nokutela Dube is honoured posthumously with one of the country's prestigious national awards a century after her passing Featured

South Africa has recognised ANC pioneer, Ms Nokutela Dube a century after her death. President Jacob Zuma has posthumously awarded Nokutela Dube with South Africa's highest order, 100 years after her death. She played a crucial role in the founding of what was to become the governing African National Congress. But while her husband, John Dube, is well known as the ANC's founding president, she was virtually forgotten.

The restoration of the knowledge about Ms Dube's contributions has been one of the greatest gifts to South Africa, and especially to the history of women’s contributions to the development of the country. It has been a silenced history that we have seen generously restored by Professor Cheri Keita, colleague from Mali, and Professor of Francophone Literature at Carleton College, Minnesota, USA.

Our deepest gratitude to Professor Keita who has campaigned for Ms Dube's recognition and for his ongoing quest of giving back to the country, his knowledge of one of its significant woman pioneers.
