For the tour, visitors will walk from Moris Isaacson school, where the protest march began, to Vilakazi street, the only street in the world to house two Nobel Peace Prize recipients, where the protest march ended. It will then take route through Orlando west to visit the Mandela Family Museum and Hector Pieterson Museum you will learn about the first child to be killed during 1976’s student uprising, and you will learn about South Africa’s struggle for democracy.
Antoinette Sithole will start the Heritage Walking Tours, giving visitors a full description of events on that fateful day. Other veterans of the day will act as ambassadors at significant places along the walk to describe their experiences. The aim of the Walking Tours is to make visitors feel as though they were there on 16 June 1976. The tours end with the visitors enjoying a traditional South African lunch and engaging harmoniously with the locals.
