CALS invited UKZN staff and students to celebrate Africa Day a day early on Friday, 24 May, this year by visiting the Centre for a tour of its collections.

Law students, Sakhile Nene and Judy Rautenhheimer, took a break from their legal studies to celebrate with CALS and are seen here in the CALS Board Room in front of displays on the CALS  isiZulu Literary Museum,  the South African  literary biographer, poet and novelist, Stephen Gray, and the late Chinua Achebe.

Nigerian writer Achebe is renowned for his novels, the best known being: Things Fall Apart. CALS has substantial holdings of the works of both writers which are reflected in the UKZN Library’s iLink catalogue and on the CALS website at
