Lokxion Poetry House: Are We All Equal Citizens? - Youth
# 18:00 – 20:30 - Thursday, 12th March 2020; Lokxion Poetry House: Are We All Equal Citizens? - Racism - Nthateng Machaea & Vusumuzi L. Mpofu
We’ve been bringing people together in communities in Stellenbosch, Western Cape, to interrogate the word ‘Citizen’. We’ve asked people young and old what it means to them, what it inspires and how they think the idea of being an equal citizen relates to local communities, to the country and the wider world. The poets will explore and express their point of view about being a citizen and lead a conversation(s) about the Land, Racism, Education, Gender, Language, Democracy and Youth.
#Youth: A challenge to the youth to be dauntless in the face of SA's problems. From the events of 16 June 1976, we can find courage and be inspired to act and help build the country that we all want. The youth can help our fellow South Africans build this nation and bring about the change we're yearning for. The youth can serve one another, learn from those around us, keep our government accountable and work not for our own gain but for a better future for those who will come after our generation.
