Before the bulldozers of the apartheid government came in the 1960s and 70s, District Six was a 55,000 strong close knit lively community known for its jazz and anti apartheid sentiments. The District Six Museum is a small but creatively powerful museum that captures the history and culture of the neighborhood. Across town, the Bo Kaap offers a taste of a Cape Malay neighborhood that survived the apartheid years in Cape Town.
