Lessons on Apartheid South Africa (1948–1964)

This comprehensive topic focuses on the intense struggle for rights and freedoms in Apartheid-era South Africa (1948-1964), as explored through a series of educational lessons the Cunning History Teacher curated, utilising the IBDP History curriculum as a framework. The course explores the various forms and impacts of discrimination under “Petty” and “Grand” Apartheid laws, revealing a starkly divided society characterised by education segregation, forced population displacement, and segregated townships. The spectrum of protest methods is investigated, from non-violent initiatives such as bus boycotts to violent incidents like the Sharpeville massacre. Official reactions, exemplified by the Rivonia trial and ANC leader imprisonments, are considered. Key figures and groups like Nelson Mandela, Albert Luthuli, the ANC, the South African Communist Party, and ‘Spear of the Nation’ (Umkhonto we Sizwe) are spotlighted, recognising their significant roles in this historical epoch.
