This paper describes the basic human rights afforded black South Africans after the 1996 ratification of the African Charter on Human and People Rights. The paper outlines the struggle the nation underwent in order to achieve these rights that were so long denied to black South Africans and the role that Nelson Mandela played in bringing these rights to the people of South African and in abolishing apartheid for good.

From the Paper:

"Along with other human rights promised to South Africans today is the basic human right of equality. After years of being ruled by a white government--black South Africans are now promised racial equality. Prior to 1994, the fall of the apartheid society, blacks in South Africa were treated as inferior. It was accepted behavior for whites to be superior and rule their nation. They were told what to do, how to act, where to work, and what god to worship."
