Katherine James-Kleynhans, the current curator of The Geology Museum based in Museum Africa, presents her research on the Southern suburbs of Johannesburg and the history hidden in the memories of its residents.
The southern suburbs of Johannesburg have been an active area from almost the beginning of the founding of the city but don't feature in the average talk about the city's heritage.
In this short and abridged history we explore the reasons why the south has a tarnished reputation, its history and landscape and its ongoing development. Much of the history of the Southern suburbs is oral as the area is still mostly populated by artisans and blue collar workers.
