Apartheid and apartheid laws

Activity 1:

The following sources deal with Apartheid and Apartheid Laws:

SOURCE A: Act No 55 of 1949 – Prohibition of Mixed Marriages

The law stated that whites and non-whites could no longer marry one another.

SOURCE B: Act No 30 of 1950 – Population Registration Act

Each person was classified by the government as “white”, “coloured” or “native”.

People classified as “coloured’ or ‘native’ were further classified into ethnic groups, e.g. “Malay” or “Griqua”, “Xhosa” or “Zulu” etc.

All people were given official identity cards which stated their racial classification.

SOURCE C: Act No 49 of 1953 – Reservation of Separate Amenities Act

Separate entrances to buildings, separate seats, counters, cinemas, beaches, buses, etc. were established for different race groups.

People who used the wrong facility could be fined £50 or imprisonment for three months.

SOURCE D:

Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington on 28 August 1963. He called it “the greatest demonstration of freedom in the history of our nation.”

I Have a Dream “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream todayI have a dream that one day the state of Alabama …will be transformed into a situation where

little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream todayI have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plains, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together”.

Lo 3:the learner is able to demonstrate an understanding of historical interpretation

1 . You are a 15 year old boy or girl in 1965 and you have received a letter from a pen friend in San Francisco, California. This friend read in a newspaper about apartheid in South Africa. She/he has never before heard the word. Use Sources A, B and C and your own knowledge to describe to her/him in a letter your own interpretation of the meaning of the word ‘apartheid.’ Tell how you are affected by these laws.

The word Monopoly is a Latin word. it is the combination of two words-Mono means single and Poly means seller. thus Monopoly means single seller. but this is not the full meaning of Monopoly. Monopoly must produce a product which does not have close substitute in the market.
