Prison Life 1962 – 1966

Mandela’s cell, photographed by the press in the late 1970’s. The bookshelves were made by fellow prisoner, Jeff Masemola.
The harsh conditions and inhumane, ruthless treatment of prisoners continued in the 1900s. Between 1962 and 1966 prisoners were subjected to physical abuse, given poor food and were not allowed to participate in sport, recreational, cultural and other such activities. A mass “Hunger Strike” in 1966, by a thousand prisoners, caressed the tides of change and the gradual improvement of conditions surfaced.
