This paper examines how variances in race and color, controlled, confined and humiliated native South Africans for almost a century. Decades of oppression took their toll on black South Africans and they eventually resisted against their oppressors. It looks at how the cumulative resistance of oppressed South Africans and sympathizers from other countries ultimately triggered the downfall of the apartheid-enforcing government.

From the Paper:

"The black citizens of South Africa, who were subjected to innumerable atrocities under the government of the Afrikaners, were forced into reluctant but violent protests. The majority groups within South Africa formed several organizations in hopes of peacefully obtaining the liberties to which they were entitled. These organizations, quickly banned and dissolved by the Apartheid government, included the African Political Organization, formed in 1902, the 1923 South African Indian Congress, and the African National Congress (ANC) of 1912. The African Political Organization was created in order to protest the injustices of the present government toward the oppressed people in general, while other organizations were created to protect only the rights of certain races or groups of people. The South African Indian Congress was such an organization."
