Abstract:

One of a 26-part series that offers a comprehensive look at the many facets of the twentieth century, including rare archival footage and interviews with participants in major events. This segment looks at race relations during the century. The 1900s witnessed a remarkable period in race relations: on one hand, great strides were made in bringing equal rights to people around the globe; conversely, the century also witnessed the most barbaric crimes ever committed against humanity. Examines the civil rights movement in the U.S., and looks at South Africa's history, where racism was a way of life until apartheid was repealed and Nelson Mandela took office. Covers the most appalling crimes against humanity committed under racist justifications: Hitler's ambitions to create a Master Race and the annihilation of six million Jews, and the more recent crimes of ethnic cleansing in Bosnia and the Hutu massacre of Tutsis in Rwanda. Features interviews with people who have been victims of racism and those who have devoted their lives to combating its evils.
