A NEW BELIEF
In 1992, the year when the South Western Townships marathon was born, goals and frontiers were defined by systematic segregation and suppression. Twenty years after the end of Apartheid, Soweto’s streets are becoming an annual canvas for unification and international celebration of freedom, through “The People’s Race”.
This is a story about aspiring to expand the scope of belief in a nation’s self-perception.
