The oral history collections archived within SAHA include interviews collected by a range of historians, writers and activists in the course of research for external projects or publications, who subsequently donated these materials to SAHA.
Such collections include the substantial collection of interviews with over 260 South African anti-apartheid activists and leaders, undertaken by Julie Frederikse between 1979 - 1990. SAHA also houses oral history collections gathered on SAHA's behalf or as part of particular projects, such as the 1981 Detainees Oral History Project, and the '"Forgotten" Voices in the Present' Oral History Project.
