South Africa under Apartheid

In 1957, the U.S. government - via the CIA - commissioned a documentary entitled "South Africa under Apartheid."  In this clip - part one of that work - we see historic footage featuring interviews with women (both black and white), from the Federation of South African Women, who oppose a South African law requiring black people to carry passbooks at all times. 

We also hear from white Dutch clerics, supporting the separateness of apartheid, and black leaders, opposing the entire scheme as racially discriminatory. 

This film, held by the U.S. National Archives, was released to the public in 2009.
