Apartheid

Didn’t segregation end in the 1960s? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will teach you about the practice of apartheid, which continued well into the 1990s. You’ll learn what Africa was like before European settlers colonized it, as well as what happened once white people got there. Find out when South Africa won its independence and who ran the government after England withdrew. You’ll also learn why laws against racial mixing were passed, what rights each group and people had, and what rights they didn’t have. Discover how people reacted to apartheid both in South Africa and the rest of the world, and you’ll learn about a very special political prisoner. Finally, you’ll learn what happened when apartheid finally ended. Here’s a hint: It has to do with that political prisoner!
