  • WHY IT HAPPENED
    The first white settlers were the type of people who thought they were better than everyone else. they were funded by institutions and royalty meaning they had lots of money to explore and find new land and see what profit could be made off of resources.
    They were upper class in charge of expeditions. They honestly thought they were in the hands of god and that the land of Africa that they discovered was theirs that they could take.
    “if you are bigger and stronger, you take what's there” Is the quote whites went by
    The natives started realizing what was happening and that they were losing their rights and things. So, they started demanding their rights and started campaigns against white settlers. When this happened whites decided segregation was the answer. Segregation was to maintain white domination over others.
    Thus, they started the apartheid started.
  • EFFECTS TODAY
    Most people cant find work making it so that the children cant go to school because there parents have no work so they cant pay for the schooling. Because of this Many African citizens turned to crime for two reasons first for money to sustain themselves and there families and second as a method of "punishing" the whites because of the apartheid, as in rape, robbery or murder. Because most African's have very little money most are under nourished and have bad health. The Apartheid has also negatively affected the lives of all South African citizens but it specifically effected the black children because of the poverty, racism and violence a lot of the children had psychological disorders and are still recovering from that today.
  • TRC
    The truth and reconciliation commission was a court like restorative justice. Which is a group that tried to restore justice after the apartheid
    It was the first of 19 others like TRC held internationally that held public hearings
    Besides a few flaws the TRC was believed to be successful
    The TRC was based in cape town

  • ACTS
    In 1950, the Population Registration Act required that all South Africans be racially classified into one of three categories: white, black (African), or colored (of mixed decent). The coloured category included major subgroups of Indians and Asians. Classification into these categories was based on appearance, social acceptance, and descent. The Department of Home Affairs (a government bureau) was responsible for the classification of the citizenry
    Under the Immorality Act of 1950 and the Mixed Marriages Act of 1949, marrying a person of a different race was illegal. In addition, with the enactment of the Immorality Amendment Act of 1957, showing or even having intentions to have any type of relationship between members of a different race became a crime.
  • More acts
    Group act of 1950-Forced separation between races through the creation of residential areas designated for certain races.
    The Bantu Authorities Act of 1951 established a basis for ethnic government in African reserves, known as ``homelands.'' These homelands were independent states to which each African was assigned by the government according to the record of origin (which was frequently inaccurate). All political rights, including voting, held by an African were restricted to the designated homeland. The idea was that they would be citizens of the homeland, losing their citizenship in South Africa
    The Pass Laws Act of 1952 required black South Africans over the age of 16 to carry a pass book, known as a dompas, everywhere and at all times. The dompas was similar to a passport, but it contained more pages filled with more extensive information than a normal passport. Within the pages of an individual's dompas was their fingerprints, photograph, personal details of employment, permission from the government to be in
    a particular part of the country, qualifications to work or seek work in the area, and an employer's reports on worker performance and behavior.
