Africa is the first country to come to mind when it comes to racism. The resistance and struggle of the indigenous people of South Africa against the racist policies of the Apartheid regime has been engraved in the memory of the whole world. Apartheid is a form of government based on racist white minority power, a system that takes the natives of the country into class exploitation and takes their rights to human life. Apartheid disregards human dignity and does not allow domestic black people living in the country to enter into a hospital, school, social environment of the white minority. Class discrimination has entered people's homes, the marriage of blacks and whites has been banned, and the police have carried out uncontrollable inspections, entering homes or even bedrooms. The Bantu Law introduced in 1953 introduced a system of education based on racial discrimination. This education policy aims to educate the youth living in the country as an unskilled labor market member.  The apartheid regime aims to reduce the indigenous people living in the country to their own land. The indigenous people of South Africa, who have resisted against all these rightful usages, were able to gain their rights after a long, painful and difficult period. The struggle for rights is a tutorial for many countries and young generations. The repercussions of the struggle against racism in South Africa have won the Nobel Peace Prize for Nelson Mandela, who has spread all over the world. In this study, the resistance and struggle against the racism in South Africa by paying the large amounts of elderly, young and even young children are tried to be conveyed.
