The Frances Baard District leg of the June 16 Commemoration was hosted at the McDonald Pitso Stadium in Jan Kempdorp, under the theme “The Year of O.R. Tambo: Advancing Youth Economic Participation”.

The audience enjoyed performances by local youth groups who came up with brand-new ideas of cultural and informative acts.

Those attending the event were addressed by Northern Cape Premier Sylvia Lucas.

The event saw some of the audience members dressed in school uniform as a sign that the youth of 1976 had not died in vain for the struggle.
