With tears in my eyes I took a last glimpse at No. 22 Cross Street as we turned
into Stuckeris Street. ‘Sala kahle, District Six,’ I whispered.
Nomvuyo Ngcelwane grew up in the heart of District Six. In beautiful detail, she
tells of life in a bustling community, of their interesting social lives and the vibrant
atmosphere one has come to associate with District Six.
Twenty years since original publication, Ngcelwane’s story is still relevant
today and paints a captivating history of black people living in District Six before
forced removals took place. She writes with great honesty, warmth, humor and
heart. More than fifty years since forced goodbyes, Ngcelwane’s memoir
reiterates the need for social justice and casts a light on the memories forgotten
“Sala Kahle, District Six is free of posturing. It has great documentary value. The
fact that it is the memoir of a Black woman adds to its already considerable
interest.” Vincent Kolbe
