Mary Fitzgerald Square was named after the first South African female trade unionist who was heavily involved in the 1910 miners strikes. During that time, the square was the site of many union strikes and protests. Today the square is the center of Newtown, surrounded by Museum Africa, Market Theater, the Jazz Walk of Fame and a number of places for eating, drinking and entertainment.
