South End Museum (Humewood)
South End is a suburb in Port Elizabeth which was once a cosmopolitan community. People from all walks of life lived harmoniously in the epicentre of cultural diversity. Blacks, whites, coloureds, Indians, Chinese, Jews, Greeks and many more were united in their attitude towards family values, faith and morals, despite the diversity of religion, language and race.
However, this vibrant community changed completely with the re-location of all non-whites when, in 1948, the National Party was elected to power and the Apartheid ideals were implemented. The South End Museum was established in recognition of this once diverse and bustling neighbourhood and exposes some of the injustices experienced by non-whites to provide an accurate picture of life in this once thriving community.
