Black Wednesday. 1977 sometimes feels as if it was such a long time ago that we live in a completely new era. On other days, it feels as if it was only yesterday, that there are still long battles to fight and wars to win. They planted the seeds of the deep, free expression in SA that we enjoy today. There are few no-go zones, a Constitution to protect us and a vein of activism running through our journalism that is testament to a proud past.
