New Slavery Exhibitions

Join us as we take you through the renewed slavery exhibition spaces at the Iziko Slave Lodge. The exhibition narrative has been rewritten to give greater recognition to the presence of women and children, in order to acknowledge their agency, and to highlight positive and negative legacies and the afterlives of slavery. This is a representation of many truths in a traumatic and complex history of slavery and dispossession as it impacted on the lives of most black South Africans.
