Apartheid

Segregation in South Africa

Problem or Goal

An apartheid is a segregation of races.

Apartheid means separateness.

It was created in South Africa because the white settlers had all of the power and they thought that they where amazing and that they were the dominate race so they could rule the world.

When & Where

It was created in South Africa. It was in South Africa because it was settled by Europeans and they just wanted to take over everything. So, they moved to South Africa enslaved them, they took a stand, they got freedom, but still the hard ships were not over yet. They were treated like animals they couldn't have the same education, public benches, restrooms, houses, jobs, and so on and so forth.

It began in the 1800's and ended in 1994.
