June 16, 1976 – a day that is synonymous with South Africa’s struggle against apartheid. It is the day that symbolises the rising of our nation’s youth against oppression. It is the day that changed the course of our country’s history. It is the day that our country’s youth claimed their rightful place in our country’s narrative. Constitution Hill, together with its partners, commemorates the youth of ’76, through a celebration of creative expression at its Annual Basha Uhuru Freedom Fest.
The festival brings you music | film | art | poetry | design and fashion – all within the Constitution Hill human rights precinct located within Joburg’s inner city, check out the full programme.
