South Africa under Apartheid - Part 2

This clip - part two of "South Africa under Apartheid" - examines differing ways of political life between South African blacks and whites. 

Black leaders reject the very concept that apartheid is the best way of life for them.  Oppressing people, they argue, leads to discontent and mistrust.  

Alan Paton (1903 - 1988) - a white South African who also opposed apartheid - explains why he thinks the system is wrong and why it leads to an emotional climate in which everyone fears that violence will erupt.  Among Paton's books are:

Cry, the Beloved Country;

Too Late the Phalarope;

Ah, but Your Land is Beautiful;

Tales from a Troubled Land;

Alan Paton Speaking (by Roy Holland);
