Colonialism and apartheid defined South Africa for many decades, and although our history in the United States differs, commonalities exist between the two nation’s experiences with slavery, segregation, the struggle for equality and civil rights, and continued racial tensions. Keeping the similarities and differences of both nations in mind, students will look to history to examine scenarios in which South Africans exercised their rights while in violation of apartheid laws.
