DescriptionFully searchable, digitized collection of television and radio broadcasts, periodicals, newspapers, and government documents translated into English, originally written by the people who experienced apartheid and those around the world who watched, reacted to and analyzed it. Apartheid was the system of laws used to separate whites from blacks, Indians, and mixed-race people in South Africa. It lasted from the 1940s until the early 1990s. The primary source documents shed new light on both the global response to apartheid and the effects of apartheid on the global community. The Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS), a U.S. government organization that became part of the CIA, monitored, collected and translated the media.
