Here, just discovered, is a remarkable photo of Danny Schechter attending the funeral of the ANC President, Chief Albert Luthuli, in 1967. He was supposed to be keeping a low profile, just having distributed his ANC leaflets in Durban, but he could not resist attending the funeral. As a white man, he must have stood out a mile but was probably protected by the presence of foreign diplomats and journalists. He describes the episode brilliantly in his chapter of our book.
