About this title


In honor of the 30th anniversary of June 16, 1976—now called Youth Day in South Africa—this book provides an account of the events leading up to the Soweto uprising, which was ignited by police brutality toward students protesting the compulsory teaching of half their subjects in Afrikaans. Thumbnail sketches of key leaders such as Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Tsietsie Mashinini, Sam Nzima, and Hector Pieterson are included, as well as a list of documentary movies and other resources to widen the knowledge of young people about crucial aspects of South Africa's struggle against apartheid.

About the Author:

Sahm Venter is the editor of A Free Mind: Ahmed Kathrada's Notebook from Robben Island and Something to Write Home About.
