Learn about the Apartheid Policy of South Africa with iMinds insightful knowledge series. Until 1994, only one quarter of the South African population voted in elections. People classified as 'non-White' were denied basic rights, including the right to vote. This system was known as 'apartheid'. The word comes from Afrikaners, a South African language. It literally means 'separateness' or 'apartness'. Colonialism in Africa occurred in waves. The first was in 1488, when a Portuguese boat moored in southern Africa. But it was not until 1652 that Europeans, this time the Dutch, established a base there which became known as 'Cape Town'. The base was staffed by ninety men with the aim of providing provisions to the Dutch East India Company. This group became known as 'Boers'. iMinds brings targeted knowledge to your eReading device with short information segments to whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.
