I chose this piece because many people might not know what the word “Apartheid” means”; it is an important word in our Global Peace course. The purpose of this piece is to always remember the meaning of apartheid. This piece makes me happy because I wasn’t clear about what apartheid means, but I am clearer now. I learned that apartheid is separation.

QUESTION: How do you define Apartheid?

ANSWER: I define Apartheid as putting people into categories and using those categories to oppress some people and favor other people.

Thanks to Miss. H for letting me use this excerpt of the interview.
