Remembering the Apartheid

Hi, This is Roger Goldbloom from the AJC, today we will be remembering a low point in world history, and celebrating the 21st anniversary of the ending of the Apartheid. The Apartheid occurred in South Africa from 1948 to 1994. Apartheid mean separated, and that's how people lived. Colored, Asians and Blacks were separated from whites. It started when the British defeated the Afrikaners and Zulus in 1910. Because most of South Africa was ruled by whites, and they wanted to keep things that way. The British created a set of laws to keep the wealth and land controlled by whites. This system was known as the Apartheid, and it segregated different races. Blacks were forced to live in poor, rural areas known as homelands. They were not allowed to vote, go to the same schools, restaurants and hospitals as whites, they were put in poor schools, and low jobs, and had to carry identification. After many years of peaceful protests, and pressure form foreigners, the Apartheid was ended by President F.W De Klerk. A new president was democratically elected in 1994, his name was Nelson Mandela and he had spent 28 years fighting the Apartheid. Many people resisted the change, but today South Africa has a mostly Stable government. This has been Roger Goldbloom with Remembering the Apartheid.
