June 16, 1976 - Hector Petersen, a 13-year-old South African student is shot and killed during a massive demonstration to protest apartheid laws in South Africa. The photograph of the fatally wounded Petersen being carried from the scene appeared throughout the world and he became a symbol of the anti-apartheid movement. A generation later, June 16 is still a day of remembrance, particularly in Soweto, where Petersen was killed. Producer Gemma Hooley traces the path that several people close to the scene took after the Soweto uprising was finished.
