‘Time to heal starts now’

A NEW exhibition at the Red Location Museum in New Brighton has contextualised the devastating riots that rocked Port Elizabeth’s northern areas more than two decades ago.

The exhibition – The 1990 Northern Areas Uprising in Context – is also an attempt to heal those affected by the unrest of that August in which dozens died.

Northern Areas History and Heritage Project (NAHHP) member Michael Barry was the keynote speaker at the launch last night.

“Twenty-three years ago saw the people of the northern areas being traumatised. Our communities were separated but now is the time to talk with each other. This process will assist to heal the community,” Barry said.
