Sol Plaatje Museum and Library is located in the former home of Solomon Tshekisho Plaatje, the first Secretary-General of the ANC, whose work as a politician, journalist, and writer took him on travels around the world. Fluent in at least seven languages, Plaatje became the first black South African to write a book in English. He also translated many of William Shakespeare's works into his native tongue of Tswana. Plaatje's life is commemorated in this museum. Call ahead to make sure the museum is open.
