Artist's Description

Soweto, A.K.A. Southwestern Townships, is one of the largest and historically worst townships in South Africa. Townships are where the Bantu, the Coloureds and the Malay were forcibly relocated by the Afrikaaners before and during the apartheid years. Housing was pathetic, infrastructure was nonexistant. After Nelson Mandela was released from prison and elected as president of South Africa, he moved back to Soweto, his hometown, and made a point of building it into a much safer and more prosperous area. It is now a popular tourist attraction and better off than most other Townships in the country, which still face poverty and inhospitable conditions.
