24 September 2021 Heritage Month – in celebration of struggle icons

Heritage Month – a celebration of struggle icons

Heritage Month in September and Heritage Day on 24 September in particular is commemorated annually to mark our nation’s diverse culture and heritage.

The 2021 theme for Heritage Month is “The year of Charlotte Maxeke: Celebrating South Africa’s Intangible Cultural Heritage”. This year’s theme pays tribute to the 150th anniversary of the liberation struggle heroin and human right activist Charlotte Maxeke. She is being celebrated to inspire the women of this country to follow her example.

Heritage Month is also an opportunity to commemorate the centenaries of our late resistance and liberation struggle icons, and honour their contributions towards a free and democratic South Africa.

Let us continue honour and celebrate these struggle icons!
