This day in history, 1951 : the signature piece of National Party legislation came into effect.

In many ways the racialised geography of South Africa became entrenched with the passing of this act, and the contemporary problems of systemic inequality can be traced back to it. #southafrica #history #sahistory #apartheid #geography #white #black #discrimination #race #racism #remember #dontforget #1950 #nationalparty
