Sharing memories of a more united town


Brothers Jack and Harry Rama were among the Grahamstown residents who shared memories of a more integrated Grahamstown before the forced removals of the 70s, at an event titled ‘Remembering Forced Removals’ hosted by Rhodes University’s Isikhumbuzo Applied History Unit at the Eastern Star Museum Wednesday night. Here Harry (right) holds up a painting of the family’s Chapel Street home on the corner of Chapel and Queen Streets before it was demolished. Jack (left) holds up a photograph of the vacant plot that remains today, around three decades later. More about the project in next week’s edition. Photo: Sue Maclennan
