Ugly, Essential History

One can't understand modern South Africa without learning something of the intense history of the country's race relations. To begin wrapping your head around this complicated story, pay a visit to the Apartheid Museum, which explores the namesake government policy of racial segregation that prevailed in South Africa from 1948 to 1991. Striking exhibits explore the roots of apartheid, the discrimination and violence it engendered, and turning points of the brave resistance it inspired, from the Soweto uprising to Nelson Mandela's release from prison in 1990.
