Shadows of Justice : The Story of Graham Michael Lesch

He shared a deep spirituality with the ancestral heritage of the African continent and thanked the great architect of Africa for his grace. He found no greater enemy than South Africa’s apartheid government. From 1952 – 1974 he was labeled a notorious criminal and incarcerated in many jails from which he escaped. In jail he was starved and tortured, out of jail he was hunted. He fled South Africa in 1969 by foot in a futile attempt to join the P.A.C. in Tanzania.
