apd28. Forbidden Pastures

Education under apartheid was totally segregated by race, with schools for black students hugely inferior to those for whites. Under the misnamed ‘Extension of Universities’ Act universities were also segregated. Published just after the 1976 school students uprising, this pamphlet exposes how the apartheid education system was designed to confine black students to the ranks of unskilled labourers. It was distributed by the International Defence and Aid Fund (IDAF) and distributed by the Anti-Apartheid Movement.
