JUNE 16th WAS YOUTH DAY IN SOUTH AFRICA
Youth Day in South Africa is a day to honour the courage and sacrifice of the Soweto Uprising youth and celebrate all young people. Previously known as Soweto Day, Youth Day marks the start of the Soweto riots on this day in 1976.
The June 16th, 1976 Uprising that began in Soweto and spread countrywide profoundly changed the socio-political landscape in South Africa. Events that triggered the uprising can be traced back to policies of the Apartheid government that resulted in the introduction of the Bantu Education Act in 1953.
The aftermath of these events had dire consequences for the Apartheid government. Images of the police firing on peacefully demonstrating students led an international revulsion against South Africa as its brutality was exposed. Meanwhile, the weakened and exiled liberation movements received new recruits fleeing political persecution at home giving impetus to the struggle against Apartheid.
Twelve-year-old Hector Pieterson was among those shot. A photograph of the wounded child was printed in newspapers throughout the world. It became a symbol of the uprising against apartheid.
Youth Day commemorates these events by giving school children all over South Africa the day off.
JUNE IS NATIONAL CANDY MONTH
While we may celebrate candy all year long, June has the privilege of being the official National Candy Month. Chocolate and candy have always been a fun part of the summer months and many seasonal summer celebrations.
National Candy Month is a time to celebrate the authentic, fun treats that candy companies have been producing for more than one hundred (100) years. Started by the National Confectioner’s Association, the holiday celebrates the value candy adds to all of our lives.
And at Eat Sum More, we have all of your favorite South African candy treats for you to enjoy!
