Hi guys and gals, this June I will be travelling up to Soweto with my crew to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Soweto riots, more commonly known today as Youth Day. With the aim of interviewing the youth of South Africa and Soweto in particular, finding out what Youth Day means to them, how they see the current state of corruption in the country and what the future holds instore for us. We will be visiting the scenes of the Soweto riots of 1976 and creating quality content that will hopefully strike a message into the hearts of the youth.
Please share and help by donating to this cause all funds will go towards travelling costs and informational flyers for distribution in Soweto.
"Youth Day in South Africa commemorates the start of the Soweto riots of 1976, initially sparked by a government edict that all instruction in black schools would be held in Afrikaans. The iconic picture of Hector Pieterson, a black schoolchild shot by the police, brought home to many people within and outside South Africa the brutalities of the Apartheid regime."
