As one follows Route 67 from the city centre up towards the Donkin Reserve you pass the Public Library and St Mary’s Cathedral before climbing a set of steps up to Winston Ntshona Street (previously Chapel Street). The art piece on the wall by the steps is a statement about the 76 generation (referring to the 1976 Soweto uprising) and represents the spiritual journey undertaken by those who fought against oppression. The art piece takes the form of a pile of newspapers being blown away in the wind and the pages tell the story of the youth.
It’s sad though to see that a number of the newspaper sheets have been removed from the lower section of the piece. Very disappointing to see their remembrance defiled like this.
