Jeff Guy Launches Theophilus Shepstone and the Forging of Natal at Killie Campbell Memorial Lecture
UKZN emeritus Professor Jeff Guy launched his book, Theophilus Shepstone and the Forging of Natal, last year at the Campbell Collections‘ Dr Killie Campbell Memorial Lecture, held at the Durban Art Gallery.
This is the second annual Dr Killie Campbell Memorial Lecture, reports Vusi Buthelezi from UKZNDABA, and Guy paid tribute to Campbell for her contributions to South African’s preservation of history.
The Campbell Collections commemorated the life and work of its founder Dr Killie Campbell in September by co-hosting the launch of a new book by historian and UKZN Emeritus Professor Jeff Guy on Theophilus Shepstone.
Titled Theophilus Shepstone and the Forging of Natal: African Autonomy and Settler Colonialism in the Making of Traditional Authority and published by UKZN Press, the book is said to question many of the established views on the enigmatic colonial administrator and his policies.
