Here on the Morning Cruise we spoke with our guests about unsung heroes and their role in South Africa. Their organisation, Western Cape Legends, brings the stories of unsung heroes back into the community and also creates events where local legends can perform for their communities.
One of our guests, Clive, is a legend himself. He played soccer professionally, yet because his career overlapped with the limitations of Apartheid, he could only play for a small selection of teams. Because many musicians, athletes, artists, and other community members were similarly limited in their careers during Apartheid, their current goal at Western Cape Legends is to “deliver young people a democratic state where they can fly.”
Western Cape Legends also mentors young people in the hopes that they can strengthen the young generation to follow their passions. Too often today, our decisions and choices revolve around money, but Western Cape Legends shares the message that the current generation should nurture and strengthen their passions. The organization also hopes that the young generation will continue to open opportunities for future generations to come.
Western Cape Legends is hosting an event this Saturday where local legends will perform for the community. “Cape Flats is alive with talent,” our guests said, so come out witness it at the show.
