Hallowed Ground

The unassuming-looking Soweto drag of Vilakazi Street is one of Johannesburg's best-known corners. It's a superlative piece of real estate, given not one but TWO Nobel Prize winners have called it home: Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. Their homes are both heritage sites, the Mandela House a museum open to the public. (The Tutu House isn't.) Vilakazi Street also saw the tragic death of Hector Pieterson, the 13-year-old student killed by police during the Soweto uprising in 1976. A memorial marks the spot, while June 16, the day of the protests and Pieterson's death, is now the public South African holiday of Youth Day.
