District Six was originally established as a vibrant, mixed community of freed slaves, merchants, artisans, labourers and immigrants. By the beginning of the twentieth century, however, the process of marginalisation had begun. In 1901 the first black South Africans were removed from the area and by 1966 District Six was completely declared a white area under the Group Areas Act. The District 6 Museum plays an important role in highlighting South Africa’s apartheid history, which is something you shouldn’t miss learning more about when visiting Cape Town.
