Iziko Museums of South Africa invites the public to join our Youth Day celebration on Monday, 17 June 2019. The purpose of this event is to commemorate the role played by youth whilst fighting against apartheid. Iziko Museums has planned a tour of Iziko Slave Lodge followed by a facilitated discussion exploring the roles played youth during apartheid. Youth Day is a public holiday that takes place every year in commemoration of a protest which resulted in a wave of protests across South Africa and it was known as the Soweto uprising of 1976.
