Sol Plaatje Museum & Library

Museum in Kimberley

This museum, dedicated to activist and writer Sol Plaatje, occupies the house where he lived until his death in 1932. Panels tell the story of his life – he was known for being the first black South African to write a novel in English and for translating Shakespeare into Tswana. There are also displays on apartheid-era resistance press and information on forced removals.
