Cecil Esau

A soft-spoken man with a wealth of experiences behind him, Cecil contributes to a thorough documenting of the past with his clear memories, giving us a feeling for the past that comes through studied observation, listening and sharing. He recalls the moment he heard on Springbok Radio that Verwoed was Assassinated: he jumped onto his red bicycle to spread the news. He goes on to describe his activist journey and how his imprisonment on Robben Island contributed to his studying. If you want an immersive trip down memory lane, or to get a chance to look through a window into a world different from your own, look no further!
