South Africa:
South Africa has archaeological sites containing evidence of very early human settlement, some of which throw helpful light on the emergence of the first real human beings who could think symbolically and artistically, use language and reflect on the mysteries of life and death. For most of the past 100 000 years, the region has been occupied by small mobile groups of hunter-gatherers who learned to adapt to the harsh environment. They expressed their beliefs and rituals, outlook and activities in richly abundant rock art, and were only gradually displaced by agro-pastoralists whose presence goes back hardly more than 2 000 years. Whether it is accurate to describe the former as San and the latter as Khoikhoi (terms now favoured above Bushmen and Hottentots), two distinct cultural groups, has been debated. There was no sharp physiological divide between the early hunter-gatherers and the farmers, who were sometimes driven by necessity or inspired by opportunity to enter upon the lifestyle of the other; yet the acquisition of land and animal-husbandry skills involved a change in mindset which had to find some expression in cultural differentiation.

South Africa
Although the nomadic San (also known as Bushmen) have possibly lived in Southern Africa since around 100,000 BC, they didn't reach the Cape of Good Hope until about 2000 years ago. Because of the close relationship between the San and the Khoikhoi peoples, who intermarried and coexisted, both are often referred to as Khoisan. By the 15th century most arable land had been settled by encroaching Bantu pastoral tribes. Southern Africa became a popular stop for European crews after Vasco de Gama opened the Cape of Good Hope spice route in 1498, and, by the mid-17th century, scurvy and shipwreck had induced Dutch traders to opt for a permanent settlement in Table Bay on the site of present-day Cape Town. The mostly Dutch burghers pushed slowly north, decimating the Khoisan with violence and disease as they went. Towards the end of the 18th century and with Dutch power fading, Britain predictably jumped in for another piece of Africa. It was hoped that British settlers would inhabit a buffer zone between skirmishing pastoral Boers and the Xhosa, but most of the British immigrant families retreated to town, entrenching the rural-urban divide that is evident in white South Africa even today. Although slavery was abolished in 1833, the division of labour on the basis of colour served all whites too well for any real attempt to change. The first Anglo-Boer War ended in a crushing Boer victory and the establishment of the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek. The British backed off until a huge reef of gold was discovered around Johannesburg and then marched in again for the second Anglo-Boer War, dribbling with empiric greed. By 1902 the Boers had exhausted their conventional resources and resorted to commando-style raids, denying the British control of the countryside. The British quashed resistance with disproportionate reprisals: if a railway line was blown up, the nearest farmhouse was destroyed; if a shot was fired from a farm, the house was burnt down, the crops destroyed and the animals killed. The women and children from the farms were collected and taken to concentration camps - a British invention - where 26,000 died of disease and neglect. The Boers were compelled to sign an ignominious and bitter peace.

The History of Apartheid in South Africa
South Africa (see map ) is a country blessed with an abundance of natural resources including fertile farmlands and unique mineral resources. South African mines are world leaders in the production of diamonds and gold as well as strategic metals such as platinum. The climate is mild, reportedly resembling the San Francisco bay area weather more than anywhere in the world. South Africa was colonized by the English and Dutch in the seventeenth century. English domination of the Dutch descendents (known as Boers or Afrikaners) resulted in the Dutch establishing the new colonies of Orange Free State and Transvaal. The discovery of diamonds in these lands around 1900 resulted in an English invasion which sparked the Boer War. Following independence from England, an uneasy power-sharing between the two groups held sway until the 1940's, when the Afrikaner National Party was able to gain a strong majority. Strategists in the National Party invented apartheid as a means to cement their control over the economic and social system. Initially, aim of the apartheid was to maintain white domination while extending racial separation. Starting in the 60's, a plan of ``Grand Apartheid'' was executed, emphasizing territorial separation and police repression. In 1951, the Bantu Authorities Act established a basis for ethnic government in African reserves, known as ``homelands.'' These homelands were independent states to which each African was assigned by the government according to the record of origin (which was frequently inaccurate). All political rights, including voting, held by an African were restricted to the designated homeland. The idea was that they would be citizens of the homeland, losing their citizenship in South Africa and any right of involvement with the South African Parliament which held complete hegemony over the homelands. From 1976 to 1981, four of these homelands were created, denationalizing nine million South Africans. The homeland administrations refused the nominal independence, maintaining pressure for political rights within the country as a whole. Nevertheless, Africans living in the homelands needed passports to enter South Africa: aliens in their own country.

Who We Are Artists for a New South Africa (ANSA)
is a non-profit organization founded and supported by artists, activists and others dedicated to furthering democracy and equality in South Africa and civil rights in the U.S. Originally called Artists for a Free South Africa (AFSA) and founded in 1989 by Alfre Woodard, Blair Underwood, Danny Glover, Mary Steenburgen, CCH Pounder, Robert Guillaume and other artists, activists and friends, ANSA's initial goal was to support South Africa's quest for freedom. ANSA now works to help eradicate the inequities that are apartheid's legacy, while strengthening the bonds between our two nations and addressing related issues of social justice here in the U.S. ANSA is also helping to combat the AIDS pandemic, which is spreading more rapidly and affects more people in South Africa than anywhere else in the world. As the situation in South Africa has changed, ANSA has altered its focus to respond to the pressing needs of each new phase. With the approach of South Africa's first democratic elections in 1994, ANSA concentrated on voter education, working alongside grassroots organizations to help reach millions who had never before been allowed to cast ballots. In one of history's great triumphs, apartheid was replaced by a stable multi-party democracy and the world's most far-reaching Bill of Rights. Yet in many ways, the real work of alleviating the suffering and solving the problems created by centuries of discrimination has just begun.

Introduction Dutch settlers arrived in the area adjacent to the Cape of Good Hope in 1652. At that time, the area was occupied by the Khoikhoi clans. (They were cattle-herding people). The pressure on the Khoikhoi increased as more Dutch and French Hugunots arrived. By the 18th century, most Khoikhoi had lost their land to these European settlers. Cape Town became a major port as a way station for East Indies trade. The colonists were mostly farmers and cattle herders. They became known as the Boers. They developed their own culture and language (Afrikaans). In the 1770’s, the Boers encountered the Bantu, who were migrating. The Nguni Bantu clans settled between the Drakensberg Mountains and the sea. The Sotho clans settled in the interior, north of the Cape Colony. The 19th century competition for land led to the conflict between the Bantu clans. Hundreds and thousands died during the wars, entire clans disappeared and it resulted in the creation of many Bantu nations. Early British Settlement Boer War World Wars Botha pledged Britain full support at the outset of WWI, in 1914. Botha led the South African forces that conquered German South West Africa. Botha died in 1919 and was succeded as prime minister by Jan Christiaan Smuts. Barry Hertzog became the prime minister in 1924 and remained the prime minister until 1939. During the economic depression of the 1930’s, a coalition was formed with Smuts and Hertzog, as dual leaders of the United party. The coalition was split by Britain’s declaration of war against Germany in 1939. Hertzog tried to keep South Africa neutral and was replaced as prime minister by Smuts. The Union declared war on Germany on September 6, 1939. There was a pro-German feeling among the Boers, so there wasn’t a draft law. The members of the Union’s armed forces were volunteers and their combat action was in East and North Africa and in Italy.

Women's Struggles
W omen have played an important role in the liberation struggle as members of the ANC and allied organisations, as trade unionists and in other capacities. They carried on militant campaigns against the hated pass laws. They participated in the underground and armed struggle when that became indispensable. Many women suffered restriction, imprisonment, torture and even brutal assassination by the racist regime.
Recognising their role, the ANC formed the Women's League in 1943. The Federation of South African Women (FSAW), a multi-racial body, was established on 17 April 1954 - with the ANC Women's League as its largest component - to organise a united struggle against apartheid.
Ruthless repression by the regime prevented FSAW and the Women's League from functioning after 1960. But women found ways to continue their resistance through new legal organisations or the underground structures. In the external mission, the Women's Section of the ANC played an active role.
The ANC Women's League was re-launched in Durban, after the unbanning of the ANC, on 9 August 1990, the anniversary of the great march of women to the Union Buildings in Pretoria in 1956 to denounce the pass laws.
