Commemorate the 45th anniversary of Youth Day with these seminal and critically acclaimed books
This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Soweto Uprisings, commemorated every year in South Africa on June 16 as Youth Day.
A momentous day that will forever shape our history and how generations of young people respond to social injustice, inequality and many problems affecting the country today. Actions of the youth of 1976 have inspired and empowered today’s youth to stand up against problems that plague our society from government accountability to free higher education, climate change and most recently the high youth unemployment rate and lack of economic opportunities.
We've curated a list of seminal and critically acclaimed books from our local authors that speak to current affairs affecting young South Africans. From Wandile Sihlobo’s Finding Common Ground to Judge Dikgang Moseneke’s All Rise and Brent Meersman’s Rattling the Cage, these books can be read as a guiding light on how to navigate these issues, create viable opportunities and move the country forward.
