Barry Feinberg (1938-2023)

Barry Vincent Feinberg, SACP and ANC stalwart, has died in Cape Town after a long and difficult illness, bravely borne. For thirty years of London exile he was a tireless backroom worker designing the movement’s publicity. Many of the African Communist and Sechaba journals most striking cover designs were his work; as were the layout and graphic designs of ANC and SACP clandestine leaflets and literature distributed in South African cities.

I remember being in our UDF/NIC control room on my Apple 64kb computer documen;ng results as they came in from ac;vists, being surrounded by giants like Jerry, Pravin, Farouk and others.
