Every major city in the world has at least one Chinatown. Many, like Johannesburg, have two.
The Chinese community, sometimes seen as reticent and insular, is often forgotten in the narrative of Johannesburg’s immense, dynamic diversity.

With assistance from the China-Africa Project, Wits Journalism students have – with this project – sought to understand and reflect many different views about this frequently misunderstood community.
