Capetown, South-Africa

Townships are segregated, underdeveloped urban areas that were built mostly on the periphery of cities. During the apartheid era „non-whites“, namely „Indians“, „Africans“ & „Coloureds“ were evicted from properties & forced to move into segregated townships.       

Here are impressions from townships: Cape Flats described as "apartheid's dumping ground; Langa, which was one of the first townships & the location of strong resistance to apartheid; Gugulethu which means in Xhosa „for our pride".
