APARTHEID

WHAT & WHEN


What was Apartheid?
Apartheid was the system of racial segregation in
South Africa. Apartheid said that non-white South
Africans, the majority of the population, would be
forced to live in separate areas from the white South
Africans and use separate public facilities.
When did apartheid take place?
From 1948 to 1994

WHO
Who implemented the Apartheid?
The National Party, who gained power of South Africa
in 1948, began enforcing racial segregation under a
system of legislation called Apartheid.
Who was affected by the Apartheid?
Apartheid affected anyone who was a non-white South
African. All of these people were discriminated against
during this time period.

WHERE & WHY


Where did Apartheid occur?
Apartheid took place in the country of South Africa.

Why was Apartheid enforced?


Apartheid was enforced because the white South
Africans believed they were superior to non-white
South Africans.

HOW
How did they enforce the ideas of Apartheid?
The ideas of Apartheid were enforced through laws.
example: They banned interracial marriage, and
banned black people from going to white
universities.
How did the government at the time classify
people?
Bantu (black Africans), coloured (mixed ethnicity),
white, and Asian (referring to Indian and Pakistani).

HOW (continued)
How did Apartheid end?
In 1976 thousands of black african children demonstrated against the
Afrikaans language (Afrikaans is the language of the Dutch settlers who
came to South Africa) that was required of black South African students.
The police responded with tear gas and bullets.
After this event many more protests occurred, causing the government
to crack down on these protests. A national economic recession began,
bringing more attention to the issues in South Africa than ever before.
In 1985, the United States and the United Kingdom imposed restrictions
on financial infractions and other economic practices between them and
South Africa.

HOW (continued)
Pressure from the international community urged the government to
have reforms to apartheid such as getting rid of the Pass Law and
the laws about interracial marriage.
Although, these reforms had no effect on the international outlook
and internal turmoil.
In 1989 the South African government was taken over by F.W. De
Klerk.
The government De Klerk put in place was opposed to the ideas and
laws of Apartheid.
A new constitution was written in 1994, which freed blacks and other
ethnic groups.
Elections in 1994 led to a government with a non-white majority
marking the official end of the Apartheid system.
