Remembering Mandela's Legacy on Youth Day

Young South Africans reflected on Nelson Mandela’s legacy as they celebrated Youth Day, a public holiday held on June 16 to honor those killed almost four decades ago in the Soweto Uprisings. A series of student-held protests turned massacres, the uprisings were organized to combat the government’s enforcement of an Afrikaans-only education during apartheid.
