On June 16, 1976, Hector Pieterson was shot dead by police in what was a peaceful protest by Black South African school students marching against a new law requiring that they be taught in Afrikaans.

Told from the perspectives of twelve-year-old Hector, his sister Antoinette, and Sam Nima, the photographer who took the photograph which made front page news around the world.

Text in Afrikaans. Also available in English, isiXhosa, isiZulu, Sepedi and Xitsonga.

Writer and illustrator Adrienne Wright grew up in apartheid South Africa. She now lives in the USA.
