Where were you on that day?  I was 12 years old playing cricket outside with some friends.  The mommies called us inside to see it live on the telly.  I didn't understand it at the time, but I know what it felt like.  It felt big.  Like something big had happened to the world.  Proudly South African.  Thanks for this pic.  Moved to time travel.

The walkout by pupils at Orlando West Junior School in Soweto on 30 April 1976 in protest at being taught in Afrikaans was the fuse of the movement that came to be led by Nelson Mandela and which overthrew apartheid in South Africa. By June, Soweto was in revolt and some 600 people had been killed by the police and army. But the uprising established the jailed Mandela’s ANC as a guiding force for liberation and was immediately heeded in Britain.
