District Six Museum was founded in 1994 to honor those who were forcibly removed from their homes in the area. In the mid-1960s the South African government began relocating some 60,000 nonwhite residents to a slum-like township miles away and destroyed their homes in order to make the neighborhood whites-only.

You may ask "Why District Six?". The area is a former inner-city residential area where over 60,000 of its non white inhabitants were forcibly removed during the 1970s Apartheid regime. It was meant to be redeveloped for whites only, but as a result of international pressure it was left abandoned and empty. Walk by eerie old roads overgrown with weeds, and see what is still left today. This area is slowly redeveloping boasting quirky cafes and street art which serve as a powerful voice, telling us a story of the struggles and beauty of the area.
