HIST 201 Nelson Mandela and the Anti-Apartheid Movement
There are times when specific people, places and moments in history capture the imagination of the world. This occurs when that specificity speaks volumes to the human condition and offers lessons that we all sense are important. Such has been the case with Nelson Mandela and South Africa. This course will use Mandela and the evolution of, and struggle against, apartheid as a window into some of the 20th century’s most complex issues such as colonialism, civil disobedience, cultural resistance, freedom, racial theories, election processes, post-war negotiations and social justice.
