Join the Institute (IPTGSA) for an educational at Long March to Freedom, a first in Capetown
These heroes of the liberation struggle are being honoured in The Long March to Freedom – a procession of 400 individuals who struggled against oppression in South Africa from the early 1700s to Freedom Day in April 1994.
From the rebel chiefs and revered kings to the more well-known activists of the 1980s and 1990s, each figure is poised in walking motion, symbolically fighting for the liberation of South Africa while marching forward to the inevitable advent of democracy.
The procession spans four centuries of South Africa’s history and is an attempt to redress the historical imbalances that exist in a cultural landscape littered with colonial conquests and racial segregation.
Graphically reflecting the diverse and collective magnitude of the struggle, The Long March to Freedom is an enduring form of national thanks to the South Africans who sacrificed their lives for the democratic nation enjoyed today.
It is envisaged to be a place of learning, a place of growth, and a place of self-reflection, which will forever celebrate right over might and etch South Africa’s heroes in the world’s collective memory.
