Soweto Uprising

Sober Anniversaries and Memories

Apartheid in South Africa began its long, slow fall on 16 June 1976 when students in Soweto took to the street to protest being forced to study school subjects in Afrikaans.

June 16 is now celebrated as Youth Day in South Africa, a day when the courage of students resulted in the horrible deaths and woundings of the young of a nation and paved the way for the end of a racist apartheid government.
