The Fall of Apartheid in South Africa

For over forty years, the people of South Africa lived under apartheid, an oppressive system of laws based on racism and inequality. Many heroic people fought against this system, but their actions carried grave risks. Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison. Helen Joseph faced house arrest and assassination attempts. Steve Biko was beaten to death by police. Find out how in spite of all the risks, antiapartheid resistance grew stronger, and over time, it led to an amazing transformation. Nelson Mandela changed from a prisoner to a president, and South Africa changed itself into the stable democracy it is today.
