S4 E1: District Six – A Landscape of Memory

In our first episode of season four, Nadia Davids, the President of PEN South Africa, interviews Ciraj Rassool, Senior Professor of History at the University of the Western Cape.

Together, they explore the history of District Six, forced removals, restitution, artistic representation, memorialisation, and consider the connection between the District Six Museum and the Tenement Museum in New York City

In this episode we stand in solidarity with three activists from Egypt: writer and blogger Alaa Abdel Fattah, human rights lawyer Mohamed al-Baqer and blogger Mohamed “Oxygen” Ibrahim.
