In 1948 an all white National Party came to power. This brought in apartheid, which was their main agenda. This brought white supremacy which meant blacks could not marry outside their own race, choose where to live or travel where they pleased. TheAfrican National Congress was created to resist the Apartheidand their leaders were often put in jail. They wanted a non racial democracy. Nelson Mandela became the leader of that party. He was arrested in 1964 and put there for life. He became a symbol of the resistance/revolution. The UN condemned the apartheid system in 1952.
