Soweto, South Africa
Soweto is a township existing outside of Johannesburg, South Africa with deep and historical ties to apartheid as well as the legacy of resistance that grew out of it. There exists a wide variety of experiences and stories that give a colorful, lively face to the present and history of Soweto. Pictured are photos representing time spent with an incredible host family, who graciously opened their doors to me and another student, showing us life and personal stories as they relate to experience and perspective pre and post apartheid. Also pictured are photos capturing the historical movements attributing to the end of the apartheid law and regime.
