A few weeks ago I went to the Iziko Slave Lodge, for an art exhibition about slavery. The exhibition started October last year until end of March 2017. I had been meaning to go check it out but something always got in the way and on occasion when I got time I chickened out. Asking myself are you really going for that exhibition? I was worried about what the stories will entail and whether I will able to fathom their contents. Well, on the second last day of the exhibition, I got the courage to go to the museum. I was ready to hear the real stories behind why some South Africans are named after months.
The Iziko Slave Lodge is located at the Corner Adderley and Wale Streets, Cape Town. Open from Monday to Saturday from 10h00 to 17h00. Closed on Sundays.
