For almost 40 years, Sowetan has unapologetically reflected your life, earnestly and in all its shades. We have told your story of trial and triumph. This is why we have launched a campaign that serves as our commitment to continue to tell your story, authentically, with integrity and even greater zeal.

"The #KnowYourPlace movement is recognition that throughout history, you have been told to know your place, to dream only as far as others let you, to aim only as high as their ceilings permitted. But you didn’t."
