MAYOSI, B M. The first black doctors and their influence in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2015, vol.105, n.8, pp.635-636. ISSN 2078-5135.

The early black doctors who qualified from foreign medical schools between 1883 and 1940 were pioneers in the history of South Africa. They made seminal contributions to the struggle against colonialism and apartheid, established the principle of fighting against racism in healthcare through the courts, and were trailblazers in academic medicine. They have bequeathed a remarkable legacy to the new South Africa.
