Photographer's Note

Lovedale College, together with Fort Hare University, formed the Mecca of black education in Africa south of the Sahara for many years and they retain that reputation to this day. Amongst the many African leaders who attended either or both institutions are Govan Mbeki (South Africa), Nelson Mandela (South Africa and The World), Thabo Mbeki (ex-President of South Africa), Oliver Thambo (South Africa) and Robert Mugabe (Zimbabwe). James Stewart (1831-1905) was the second principal of the college and occupied that position for fifty years. The memorial seen here was erected in his honour by those who were denied the privilege of mainstream education.

PS: Can someone please inform me how to get the image size down to the required level and retain a good file size - this is only 44 kb.
