Digital Memory Box

Tool prototype, 2006-2008


The Digital Memory Box contributes to the ongoing effort by South African historians and archivists to preserve the record of Black townships by collecting first-hand accounts, on-scene images, and blog postings. The Museum hopes to foster some positive legacies by allowing former students still living in Soweto, and elsewhere, to tell their stories in their own words. These stories will become a part of the historical record and will remain accessible to a wide audience for generations to come.
