« Ceux qui font tomber la barrière de couleur au pays de l'apartheid » Le pasteur Georges Mabille et les prémices de la ségrégation raciale d'État en Afrique du Sud

Abstract : This article examines the first years of the apartheid era in South Africa through the eyes of George Mabille, a French protestant missionary from the Paris Evangelical Missionary Society, stationed in Johannesburg amongst the Sotho miners, an extension of the French Mission in Lesotho, from 1946 to 1957. He fought segregation in South Africa along with fellow anglophone clergymen, when the apartheid regime was in its early stages, period which is often neglected by researchers who study apartheid. This study is based on the concept of micro-history as defined by Carlo Ginzburg, and as far as the corpus is concerned on archival material from George Mabille held by the Défap (Département évangélique français d’action apostolique) in Paris, as well as testimonies given by people who knew him well, in order to account for how resistance to apartheid was initiated within the country, which forms it took, in which context and what the consequences were.
