About this book:

The 16th of June 1976 marked a turning point in the political struggle for equality in South Africa. This book commemorates the event by featuring interviews with 30 people who were at school during the uprising. The book is structured around different focal points such as: events leading up to 16 June, the day itself, the aftermath of the uprising, the influence and effect it had on the lives of the various interviewees. Private photographs of the interviewees then and now round off the text. A short authoritative introduction by a respected historian places the event in context.
