Radio Workshop Podcast–September 26, 2009
Listen to the entire show
Thursday, September 24th, was Heritage Day. Heritage Day gets us to look at who we are––where we’ve come from, and what defines as a nation.
All sorts of things make up our history and our heritage. It can be politics, it can be music and theatre, and it can be sports! Today we find out about one of the oldest professional football clubs in the country. The Orlando Pirates––also known as the Buccaneers.
And we also check in with a young historian––Refilwe Tsumane will tell us about her award-winning community history project. Stay tuned!
