Lineage, is what Alfred Francis Adderley had, coursing through his veins. Through his father William Parliament Adderley, Alfred – young, gifted and black – could trace his roots, unbroken, straight back to Africa.

In 1924, in addition to everything else, Alfred Francis was legal advisor to the Tribune newspaper.
