In their eyes, black Africans were simply slave labor and were not worthy to be in the presence of whites The Point of View of Nelson Mandela & President F.W. de Klerk These two men were believed in the policies included in the Freedom Charter and the Congress of the People. That "South Africa belongs to all who live in it, black or white."
That non-violence is the greatest method to achieve goals and restore their rights peacefully The Apartheid Of South Africa What is An Apartheid? By Hiral Patel & Komal Aheer A system of segregation that separates
