Apartheid South Africa and Struggles for Democracy


Working through an array of diverse organizations – including the African National Congress, the Pan African Congress, the Black Consciousness Movement, a host of liberal organizations, the churches, the trade union federations, and countless more - South Africans fought against apartheid from its inception. In 1994 they achieved a multi-racial democracy led by President Nelson Mandela. This seminar explores key themes in post-World War II South African history, paying special attention to the plethora of anti-apartheid struggles, while analyzing the tenets of apartheid policies.
