The 1950-60's Black Civil Rights Movement in America The actions of the 1900's black civil rights movement, and a brief outline of the events that occurred. America is advertised as the world's greatest democracy, the land of freedom and equality. However, as little as 40 years ago this slogan was far from the truth. African-Americans were discriminated against constantly, tortured and killed for no other reason than their skin color. This was the period of the Black Civil Rights movement, which saw the birth of many modern-day heroes such as Martin Luther King. MLK was looked up to due to his non-violent protest based on the teachings of the Bible and Mahatma Gandhi.

Apartheid didn’t die in South Africa The murder of 34 miners by the South African police, most of them shot in the back, puts paid to the illusion of post-apartheid democracy and illuminates the new, worldwide apartheid of which South Africa is both a historic and contemporary model. In 1894, long before the infamous Afrikaans word foretold “separate development” for the majority people of South Africa, an Englishman, Cecil John Rhodes, oversaw the Glen Grey Act in what was then the Cape Colony. This was designed to force blacks from agriculture into an army of cheap labour, principally for the mining of newly discovered gold and other precious minerals. As a result of this social Darwinism, Rhodes’s De Beers companyquickly developed into a world monopoly, making him fabulously rich. In keeping with liberalism in Britain and the United States, he was celebrated as a philanthropist supporting high-minded causes. Today, the Rhodes scholarship at Oxford University is prized among liberal elites.

White men clad in military uniforms stamped with an old South African flag guard the gates of the controversial settlement known as Kleinfontein.

Apartheid impacts are still felt in South Africa Crime and violence are notoriously high in South Africa. If you drive around just about anywhere you will see high walls with barbed or concertina wire encircling nearly every middle- or upper-class home. Often, broken glass or metal spikes stick out of the tops of these walls to discourage thieves from climbing over. As I saw these and other safety precautions during my recent trip to South Africa, it caused me to ponder why the crime rate is so high there. I came to the conclusion that the effects of injustice take a long time to heal.

The racism and segregation being enforced and being part of the law in South Africa had a terrible impact on the population. Families were torn apart, territory was divided unequally, to the Whites’ advantage, and even public facilities were segregated (see other pearl with picture). Everything was to for the benefit of Whites. Blacks were left with almost nothing. In “Sweetgrass Basket” and in America in general, the Natives have less advantages. They cannot own a property and earlier in the last century, some of their ceremonies were illegal. But, in the novel, some of the examples of this unfairness, are first the fact that the children were abused, but also that they were not properly fed and did not have proper care, this is part of why Mattie died in the end. by tonleclercmurphy Oct 31
