Abstract

The recent commemoration of Heritage Day and Heritage Month raised questions about the state of social cohesion and national identity in the country after 20 years of democracy. Are we proudly South African? What are we most proud of and what shames us about our country? Benjamin Roberts, Steven Gordon, Jare Struwig and Greg Houston examine trends in national pride since 2003.
