Johannesburg is a city of migrants and stereotyping abounds. Displaced foreigners find each other, form their own communities, creating micro-versions of the countries and families left behind. So we group them together accordingly – in our minds, our words, our conversations – ascribing universal “truths”. “Newtown, Zimbabwe” prompts us to re-evaluate any established perceptions by reminding us of the enterprising spirit of Africa that inspires and unites us all.
