Juliette Franciscus, Karen Britten and Sean Stockenstroom during the student uprisings, Athlone, Cape Town, 1985. The photograph speaks to Athlone as a once charged environment in the struggle for non-racialism. The Dullah Omar Centre for Critical Thought in African Humanities (DOCCTAH), a satellite of the CHR, seeks to recuperate commitments by students and others that once gave rise to ideas about a non-racial, postapartheid society.
