This video explains the former apartheid system in South Africa.  There is a lot of information in a short video, so you might want to watch it twice.  After watching…

  1. Summarize apartheid.
  2. How has it shaped the country of South Africa?
  3. Does this relate to other stories we’ve discussed in class.
  4. What are your thoughts?

  • What are the social questions at stake?
  • What are the health questions?
  • What is your opinion?
