Summary:
Segregation, discrimination, prejudice, bigotry and hatred - in the 1960's, America did not seem like a place where "all men are created equal." This dangerous racial climate would soon explode in a flurry of boycotts, activism and violent rebellion. And America wasn't the only country facing racial strife. South Africa's oppressive apartheid laws mandated separation, creating two unequal societies under one flag.
