CHALK4PEACE CHALKSTARS: St. George's Cathedral, Cape Town, S.A.


The Community Arts Therapy Programme, CATh, founded by Angela Rackstraw, was one of the first organizations to step forward to join CHALK4PEACE when it painted the steps of St. George's Cathedral in Cape Town, South Africa in 2006. Archbishop Emeritas Desmond Tutu told Angela about CHALK4PEACE; and the Cathedral offered its space to CATh to spread their messages and visions of love and peace. The steps in these photos are the steps where Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu stood when they first publicly denounced Apartheid. From the early years.... thanks to Angela Rackstraw and Gabbie van Heerden
