District Six reunion

Beryl Jansen and Priscilla Fortuin all dressed up.

It was a blast from the past for former residents of District Six, who had their second reunion on Saturday August 19 at the Black Pool hall in Salt River. More than 100 people who lived in District Six before it was declared a whites-only area under the Group Areas Act, gathered to celebrate the day, all dressed up. The event, themed 60s to 80s, featured games that ex-residents had played while growing up, a District Six “restaurant”, music and karaoke.
