  Elinor Sisulu Wednesday 5 November 2003  
For many black South Africans, Walter and Albertina Sisulu were the archetypal 'parents' of their nation.

Their 58 year long marriage endured the quarter-century Walter spent in jail, the hardships of apartheid and the constant danger of secretly fighting against the regime.
Their daughter-in-law Elinor Sisulu joins Jenni to tell how their devotion to each other became the bedrock of their political fight.
'Walter and Albertina Sisulu - In Our Lifetime' by Elinor Sisulu is published by Abacus; ISBN: 034911711
