Transcript

  • 1. Apartheid By: Annette Armellini
  • 2. Why I chose this topic
    • I chose this topic because I knew that Africans were still not completely free from Apartheid, I wanted to know more about how South Africa got this way.
  • 3. What I already knew
    • I knew that Apartheid separated people by race, which I believe is very wrong.
  • 4. What effects does Apartheid still have on South Africa? (Essential Question)
    • Africans are hardly free; although they can speak to whomever and go where they want to.
    • Many still live in poverty.
    • South Africa remains a divided nation.
  • 5. What is Apartheid?
    • Apartheid was a type of government in South Africa. It separated people into four groups: white, black, colored and Asian.
    • Apartheid basically means “apart” or “separate.”
    • Africa was under the rule of Whites, even though the majority was Blacks.
  • 6. What were some laws during Apartheid?
    • Married couples and families had to have state permission to live together.
    • Black children and White children both had different education.
  • 7. How did Apartheid begin?
    • European settlers wanted to colonize South Africa.
    • They got their power by separating them and making them fight each other.
  • 8. How did Apartheid end?
    • After forty-five years, the president, F.W. de Klerk, wasn’t for Apartheid.
    • F.W. de Klerk helped pass laws to end Apartheid
    • The government had given up after the economy was weakening in 1990.
    • Then, Africans, of all colors, peacefully elected Nelson Mandela as the new president.
  • 9. What happened after Apartheid ended?
    • After Nelson Mandela announced that they were “free at last,” they had struggles to get over.
    • It took awhile for it all to settle in, and some are still not completely free.
  • 10. Some more questions after research
    • Why aren’t the blacks completely free?
    • Is Africa trying to get Africans out of poverty?
  • 11. What surprised me
    • Apartheid was really similar to that time of when Blacks and Whites were separated and how Martian Luther King Jr. ended it.
  • 12. The end
    • Thanks for watching!
