Apartheid South Africa

We grew up in South Africa around many of these signs and statutes. According to the BBC, "The political system of apartheid governed every aspect of life in South Africa from 1948 to 1991. In practice, apartheid enforced a racial hierarchy privileging white South Africans and under this system only they had the vote."

Where were you on that day? I was 12 years old playing cricket outside with some friends. The mommies called us inside to see it live on the telly. I didn't understand it at the time, but I know what it felt like. It felt big. Like something big had happened to the world. Proudly South African. Thanks for this pic. Moved to time travel.
