Slavery in the Cape: Rediscover Cape Town's slave history on an audio tour

Slavery in the Cape: Rediscover Cape Town's slave history on an audio tour

Almost thirty years ago, genealogist Aubrey Springveldt started investigating his own family tree. His research led him on a pilgrimage into the earliest days of the Cape, and an ancestry shaped by slavery. Join him on that pilgrimage by visiting some of the landmarks connected to slavery in Cape Town. Landmarks like the Place of Justice, where slaves were brutally punished, and the Prestwich Memorial, where they were buried in unmarked graves. Along the way, Aubrey peels back the layers of his own past, and talks about his work in reclaiming the past for others. This is a self-guided audio tour. Please download the tour through the VoiceMap app using the coupon code you receive on your receipt. It is advised that you download the tour while in a wifi zone to enjoy full offline accessibility.
