  12. 12. Summary of Notes <ul><li>Apartheid contributed in African history as a bad part of history. It was a bad part of history because white people were discriminating the blacks. They were discriminating the blacks by not able to vote, bad schooling, bad jobs, and couldn’t walk with pride. After an election the apartheid ended and the blacks could vote, received good schooling, and good jobs. But one thing that is better than all this is black African people walk their country with pride. </li></ul>
