Product Overview

Designed as a teaching tool, this analysis looks back at the events that occurred on March 21, 1960, in South Africa. The day became known as the Sharpville Massacre--69 protestors were shot and killed. Now named Human Rights Day, it stands as an observance to those victims and a memorial to their sacrifice in the struggle against apartheid and in shaping democracy. The book explains human rights, both in relation to apartheid and as universal conditions, discusses the day''s events and the country''s reaction, and lists the names and families of the people involved. Concluding with a section on contemporary South Africa, this exploration reveals how discussing the past can help shape a better future.
