South Africa Apartheid By: Avat, Kelsey, Kendra, Megan, and Talor
How do 80% of a country's population lose power to the minority of 12%?
Apartheid Took place in South Africa It began around 1948 and then ended around 1990 after approx. 42 years.
Type of Change Directed Change: One culture changes another culture through dominance and therefore their defeat changes one aspect or entire culture. The whites of South Africa took over all aspects of the black and coloured populations lives.
The Group In Power The Whites of South Africa were in power. They wanted Economic, Political, and power of all the land. They believed the blacks and non-whites were inferior. The whole situation was based on racial discrimination or racism
The Process & Method 1948: South African Government Started to restrict the rights of Blacks. 1959: The South African Government passed laws to enforce segregation. 1965 : Only whites were represented in the elected government. Led to total segregation. During the process of the segregation the opposition like Nelson Mandela were removed.
Short Term Impact Police killed 69 Blacks at the Sharpeville Massacre. 600 students were killed at Sowets. Protester Steve Biko was murdered From 1983 to 1984: 120 people were murdered, 25 were Mutilated, 47 were raped, and there were 284 robberies. Many people were also arrested including Nelson Mandela who spent 27 years in prison.
Day-to-Day Impacts Blacks were not allowed to run a business without a permit. Transportation and civil facilities were segregated (ex. Washrooms, fountains, etc.) Hospitals and ambulances were segregated. Neighborhood's were divided. Blacks weren't allowed to employ whites. Black children weren't getting the same education as white children. Blacks weren't allowed to buy hard liquor. Black areas rarely had plumbing and electricity
Long Term Impacts Blacks and whites still aren't on equal terms but are not treated as wrongly as before. All races are allowed to vote now. Caused debt for the country.
