June 16 Memorial Acre

Top choice memorial in Soweto

Opposite one of the schools from which students marched on 16 June 1976 is this stunning open-air memorial to the bloody events that presaged the Soweto Uprising. The key artwork here is the memorial wall that documents the fateful day, hour by hour, in a panorama of gut-wrenching images.

A building also holds archive photos and posters from the era.
