14 December 1990
The African National Congress (ANC) held its first Consultative Conference in South Africa after thirty-one years from 14-16 December 1990. It was considered by the ANC as ranking in importance with such historic moments as the Congress of the People convened in June 1955; the Defiance Campaigns of 1952 and 1989; the launching of the United Democratic Front in 1983; and the release of Nelson Mandela on 11 February 1990.
