The life of English-born Sidney Bunting (1873-1936) illustrates the complex social networks and values carried across the world in the name of the British Empire. The lawyer son of renowned Wesleyan social activists, Bunting was radicalized in South Africa. He was a founding member of the Communist Party of South Africa and a campaigner for black emancipation.
