History of cricket in South Africa from 1945–46 to 1970 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

History of cricket in South Africa from 1945-46 to 1970

This article describes the history of South African cricket from the end of the Second World War in 1945 to the start of South Africa's cricket isolation in 1970. International feeling against South Africa's apartheid policy became stronger and more vociferous as the post-war era developed.

Olivia Geldenhuys's insight:

This about the history of cricket in South africa. How it was only a White mans game, then how South africa got banned from playing in tournaments gainst other courntries, such as Australia.

This, is a picture that was very contraversal, because it was a young man carrying a young boy, who was shot by the police, during the riots in Soweto.

Apartheid in South Africa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Apartheid in South Africa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Apartheid ( Afrikaans pronunciation: [ɐˈpɑːrtɦɛit]; from Afrikaans "the state of being apart") was a system of racial segregation enforced through legislation by the National Party (NP) governments, who were the ruling party from 1948 to 1994, of South Africa, under which the rights of the majority black inhabitants of South Africa were curtailed and Afrikaner minority rule was maintained.

Olivia Geldenhuys's insight:

This is about what apartheid is, how it changed and how apartheid affected South Africa.
