Apartheid: the Tyranny of Racism Made Law
Image by United Nations Photo
All-male hostel in Soweto, a black "township" some ten miles away from Johannesburg. A large percentage of South Africa’s black workers are migrants who are forced to live in such hostels, separated from their families, and in conditions widely considered unfit for human habitation. They are forced to return to their "homelands" at the end of a work contract of a year or so, and wait there until they can obtain a new work contract. 1/Jan/1982.
