Culture and Apartheid Part 2

Season 4 Episode 25



Over a fish and chip lunch on Lookout Hill, high above Khayelitsha, four Xhosa intellectuals debate on what it means to be Xhosa and whether they are losing their culture.

As the conversation heats up, the role of whites in today’s South Africa comes under scrutiny, with some pretty searing comments on the lack of transformation. How can we make sure that kids growing up in the townships don’t forget their language and their cultural heritage?
