Today we talked about South Africa and its post-colonial history. We looked at what happened after South Africa gained independence from the British, race relations during Apartheid, and South Africa's first multi-racial election! Then, in order to compare South Africa to Rwanda, we started watching Invictus. This film will allow us to see how Mandela stresses reconciliation over revenge, forgiveness over hate, and equality over oppression.
Your homework tonight is to start (continue) studying for your final. I've attached the study guide to this post!
