LECTURE AND WALKABOUT: CAPE MUSLIM AND SLAVE HERITAGE MUSEUM

The Cape Muslim & Slave Heritage Museum, located at the Castle of Good Hope, contains in excess of one thousand artefacts and works of art. This museum narrates the unedited history of the Cape by exploring the arrival of the Dutch East Indian Company, British Imperialism, the slave trade, the emancipation of the slaves, the vibrant cultures of District Six and Bo-Kaap and the contribution of Muslim, Jewish, Christian, the African and Asian diasporas in shaping contemporary South African culture. The museum tells this emotive visual story through a rare collection of paintings, artefacts, photographs and relics and aims to preserve the Muslim and Slave history of the Cape.

Drawing inspiration from his sound knowledge of Cape history, the deep rootedness in his community and extensive travel experiences, the curator, Mr Igshaan Higgins, an attorney by profession and activist, will host this session, in so doing ensuring the Cape Muslim and Slave history is preserved.

Parking is available in Darling Street next to the Castle.

Please meet Mr Higgins at the entrance to the Museum inside the Castle’s grounds.
