The Living the Legacy Youth Heritage Centre Exhibition is the culmination of a year’s work with the youth of the Western and Eastern Cape who participated in numerous activities reflecting and appreciating the achievements of all the struggle heroes and icons who contributed to ensuring the dawn of democracy in South Africa 20 years ago. The exhibition showcases the work of the youth of the Western and Eastern Cape as they remembered and journalized their parents past during apartheid and the horrors they as non-white people experienced under minority rule, such as the carrying of the “Dom Pass”, the forced removals of District 6, and the separation of races on the bases of one’s skin colour.
The exhibition provides an artistic voyage into some of the strategies of liberation organisations such as the ANC, PAC, SACP, and the UDF, as well as the turning point of the uprisings of 1976 with the death of Hector Petersen, the freeing of Nelson Mandela and the unbanning of the liberation movements in 1990, and eventually the transformation to democracy in 1994. You will enjoy the interactive nature of the exhibition as you are able to view and listen to Steve Biko and Robert Subukwe.
Please join us in celebrating the achievements of the past as S.A’s democracy grows AND experience a vintage car ride.
