It was in Soweto that the uprising took place in 1976, signalling the beginning of the end of apartheid. This text showcases some of Peter Magubane’s finest photographs, taken over almost 50 years. The book covers the town’s development and continues to today, showing its poverty, colour and art. The reader is taken through the creation of Soweto in the 50’s and it’s bloody uprising in the 70’s. The main body illustrates the people of Soweto going about their daily lives: working and playing, celebrating and grieving.
