Join the Friends on a guided tour with Iziko Museums educator Nadjwa Damon to explore the new exhibitions.

As part of Who were the enslaved? Commemorating lives under enslavement at the Cape of Good Hope, Iziko has renamed the spaces in the Iziko Slave Lodge Museum as we seek to answer the questions: Who were the enslaved? What work did they do? How did they manage to survive a new, unwelcoming and often violent environment once they arrived? How were they able to communicate with each other when they came from far-flung regions: South Asia, South East Asia, Madagascar, East Africa and initially West Africa? We will explore the ground floor, with its renamed rooms, to find their stories. These are narratives of the enslaved, free blacks, the formerly enslaved and the Khoi. You will sense their resilience amid hardship. The New Slavery Exhibitions highlights how the exhibition narrative has been rewritten to give greater recognition to the presence of women and children.
