Sandra McGregor - ‘Onse artist' in District Six
In 1966, under the Group Areas Act of 1950, District Six was declared a white area by the Nationalist government. Between 1966 and 1982 approximately 60,000 people were evicted from District Six. Communities were broken up, families separated and immense heartbreak suffered in particular by the elderly inhabitants of District Six, many of whom never adjusted to being forced to settle in remote areas of the sandy, inhospitable Cape Flats.
Sandra McGregor (1928– ) is a South African born artist who trained in England, Holland, France, and Italy in the 1950s. She returned to Cape Town in 1962 practically penniless, having been told by her father, Lee McGregor an eminent South African surgeon, that he was no longer willing to support her.
