South Africa: Overcoming Apartheid, Building Democracy

Description:
South Africa's successful struggle for freedom and democracy is one of the most dramatic stories of our time. The racial tyranny of apartheid ended with a negotiated transition to a non-racial democracy, but not without considerable personal cost to thousands of men, women, and young people who were involved. "South Africa: Overcoming Apartheid, Building Democracy" is a curricular resource website for teachers and students at college and senior secondary levels and presents first-hand accounts of this important political movement. Interviews with South African activists, raw video footage documenting mass resistance and police repression, historical documents, rare photographs, and original narratives tell this remarkable story.
