Durban Beach - Apartheid-Era Philosophy Civil Rights Government History Social Studies

During South Africa's apartheid era, even beaches were segregated.  This photo depicts a sign on the beach at Durban - written in English, Afrikaans and Zulu (the language most-oft spoken by blacks in the Durban area).

The intent of the sign - to keep all non-whites off this area of the beach - was legal under apartheid-era laws.
