The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:
Soweto – A History by Philip Bonner and Lauren Segal.
Soweto - a history, tells the remarkable story of South Africa’s largest city through the voices of Sowetans themselves. The book explores the origins of Soweto and its complex relationship with Johannesburg. It also takes a fascinating look at the vicious aftermath of the uprising of 16 June 1976, and the role of the African National Congress, the United Democratic Front, the Inkatha Freedom Party, and the National Party and other role players in the story of this unique place of laughter and suffering.
