Video on Imperialism in Africa

We’ll start with a short video…

  • Think about what you remember about Imperialism in Africa…
  • Today we will be looking at the History of South Africa as a case study for the experience of Africa in general.
south africa history
South Africa History:
  • 1652 -- The Dutch settle in Cape Colony at Cape Town. Slaves from West Africa, Malaysia, and India are imported into the colony, setting up a system where whites rule non-whites.
slide6

• 1806 – British seize and eventually take over the Cape Colony. Native peoples are told they must work for white employers and place restrictions on their travel.

  • .
slide7

• 1867 – Diamonds are discovered at Kimberley and mining begins. Africans are given the most dangerous jobs, are paid less than white workers, and are housed in fenced, patrolled barracks. They are not allowed to organize union or ask for better wages or working conditions.

slide8

• 1910 – The Union of South Africa is born under the British Commonwealth, ending its status as a colony of Great Britain. The South Africa Act is also passed which takes away all political rights of Africans.

slide9

• 1948 – Urbanization, economic growth and a world fighting for freedom during World War II fuels white fears that equality for all races might gain support. The National Party introduces apartheid measures against blacks, Indian immigrants and those of mixed race to keep the races separate and whites in power.

slide12

South Africa was the first country to gain its independence in Africa. It became independent from England in 1910. However, the white minority was determined at that time not to give away any of the power they had held since Colonial times. They knew that Education, Wealth and Unity were the three things that would allow the black population of South Africa to seize power in the new government and so they passed laws to begin Apartheid.

Big Question: How did the white South Africans keep the black South Africans from becoming Educated? Wealthy? United?

Life Under Apartheid- Skin Deep Video

Add to your charts with specifics from this video.

Keep in Mind….

Power + Prejudice = Racism

According to this definition, racism exists in the US today. How is Racism the same or different than prejudice or bias?

Prejudice- To make a decision about someone without evidence- pre-judge

Bias- to have an opinion about something based on emotion instead of facts

USA and The End of Apartheid- Pg 66A

Get a copy of the reading on the USA and the End of Apartheid. This is a Class Set.

Read this together with your partner. As you read, think about the effect everyday people in the US had on the economy and government of a country on the other side of the world.

What is Divestment?

How does it take money away from South Africa?

What did UC Berkeley do and why did they do it?

How does the Boycott of South Africa expand beyond banks and investment?

What effect does all this have on South Africa?

slide24

Using the reading about The USA and End of Apartheid answer these questions with your partner.

1. What did Americans do that led to the fall of Apartheid?

  • How did Americans affect the system of Racism (as defined by Power + Prejudice) in South Africa with their actions?
  • If Americans without the internet and cell phones did this in the 1980’s, How would the same campaign look today? What actions would they need to take? What tools could they use?

Take Action- 67A

Take Action! Class Set: Please return with your assignment

1. Find a cause you believe in. You might want to support animal rights, civil rights in the US or other countries, occupy Wall Street, political reform, a response to global warming… you might want to make people aware of injustice here in the US or in other countries like Columbia, Syria, or the Democratic Republic of Congo. You can choose any cause that means something to you. I will not judge!
