APARTHEID - In South Africa’s cities and farms, racism and official racial discrimination were a part of everyday life long before 1948.

CHILD LABOUR - They never give us a chance; they never give my father a chance to take us to school.

STRIKES - Chronology of strikes

RESERVES - The decline of a large part of the land in the reserves was beginning to affect migrant workers’ families.
