Abstract

Recollections of people who lived through the 1976 Soweto uprising both there and elsewhere provide more authentic insights than those of outside observers. The authors draw vignettes from interviews with struggle veterans conducted in 2013 by an HSRC research team and external researchers for a research project commissioned by the National Heritage Council. Recollections exactly as told.
