Cape Town, South Africa is a city battling its way out of a past marred in segregation. Today, the city, cradled between a sweeping ocean and a mystical mountain range, is challenged by the remnants of apartheid. With social, economic, and political barriers, Cape Town faces divides between white, black and coloured, between wealthy and impoverished, and between those who see a way forward and those who don't.
The following is a series of 10 stories exploring how Cape Town's post-apartheid legacy is impacting art, entrepreneurship, and urban space across the city. From a formerly imprisoned activist that faced four life sentences with Nelson Mandela, to a rising rapper trying to achieve holiness in a city that breathes inspiration yet provides unequal opportunity, we discovered a mix of passion and frustration that we want to share with you.
