Description[edit]

On the 5th of October 2019, we gathered together over 100 learners and teachers to create articles on Wikipedia in indigenous languages, in an event called AfroCuration. Our venue was Constitution Hill’s Old Fort Prison museum. But we also brought the knowledge and activism elements alive for the students by having historical characters there on the day to interact with them. We heard from Justice Edwin Cameron, Joyce Seroke, Adv Ntembesa, Adv Tembeka, and Leon Wessels. We had so much fun, and the learners won lots of prizes.


Theme[edit]

Under the theme “We, The People”, the learners added almost 50K words of new content online concerning South Africa’s cultural and political heroes involved in the making of the South African Constitution. 10 sub-themes were created to further organize the editing, with 10 articles in each.

Sub-Themes[edit]

  • Early voices of resistance
  • The Freedom Fighters
  • The Legal Giants
  • Black Consciousness / Youth of 1976
  • Constitutional Thinkers
  • The Negotiators
  • The Artists
  • The Teachers
  • The Litigants (Landmark cases)
  • The Prisoners

Languages[edit]

A total of 6 languages were available to edit in: isiZulu, isiXhosa, shiVenda, seSotho, Afrikaans and SiSwati (language set per article)
