Segregation in the US may have ended in the 1960s, but in this BrainPOP UK movie, Tim and Moby will teach you about the practice of apartheid, which continued well into the 1990s. In this eudcationla, animated movie, you’ll learn what Africa was like before European settlers colonised it, as well as what happened once white people got there. Find out when South Africa won its independence and who ran the government after the British Empire withdrew. You’ll also learn why laws against racial mixing were passed, what rights each group and people had, and what rights they didn’t have. Discover how people rioted and protested in South Africa, and the condemnation and boycotts by the UN and the rest of the world. Plus, you’ll learn about a very special political prisoner by the name of Nelson Mandela. Finally, you’ll learn what happened when apartheid finally ended. You don’t need a black and white screen to watch this movie!
