1001 South African Stories

1001 South African Stories is a project that uses storytelling as a mechanism to connect South Africans.

Through oral history we explore South Africa’s troubled and complex history. More contemporary personal narratives help to unpack South Africa’s present.

The aim of the project is to contribute to a more cohesive and inclusive understanding of South Africa’s history.
