Topic: “Colonial Mother City: Being Black in Cape Town”

Cape town is rated as one of the most majestic cities in the world. It has unique and wonderful mountains and pristine beaches. But what lies beneath its beauty, is a city still rooted in its colonial racist past. The effects of these colonial beginnings can still be experienced today in the levels of racism and social marginalisation experienced in social and professional environments and most significantly in the Church. Each year many black professionals migrate out of the city echoing the now familiar sentiment that Cape Town is not a black friendly city. In this talk Cameron Shabangu will discuss the reasons behind what he terms “the Second Trek” as he explores what a cross-centred and contextual response might look like.
