Rebel Walk - The St Paul's Uprising

Guided heritage walk revealing the story behind the St Pauls Riot of 1980 

Ignited by a police raid on the popular Black & White Café on Grosvenor Road, the St Paul’s Uprising sparked a wave of inner unrest that persisted throughout the 1980s.

"St Paul's Riot, that is the name it was known as but, for the Black youths of St Paul's it was yet another attack from the system. After years of Endless pressure of pure pressure, the melting pot spilled over. " Simba Tongogara, Walk Leader.

Community activist Simba Tongogara draws on personal experience to describe the events that led to the 1980 St Pauls Uprising, the subsequent campaign to ensure those charged were legally represented and that the voice of the Black community was heard. Simba also gives a searing assessment of the gentrification of St Pauls.
