Today in class we watched a power of place video on Apartheid and land redistribution. Afterwards we divided into our groups and divided up the learning for Chapter 7. The crime of apartheid is defined by the 2002 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court as inhumane acts of a character similar to other crimes against humanity "committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime." Most often it is associated with the country of South Africa where whites and non-whites were segregated and the white minority (10%) controlled nearly 85% of the land. Where as the non-white majority (90%) were forced into "homelands" which consisted of only 15% of the land (mostly useless drought lands). Additional information can be found on the apartheid museum website.
