The Sophiatown removals: podcast note-taking task
Students use the BBC Witness Podcast (10 minutes) to answer a series of structured questions, including: Why were the black residents evicted from Sophiatown? How long did the process take, and how many people were affected? How did the Sophiatown get its name? How did this non-white community manage to grow up in this area of Johannesburg, where black residency was usually banned?
