"Building Today's World"
As you learned in this chapter, Africa faced problems after European nations divided it into colonies during the 1800s. Rival ethnic and religious groups started wars. Many people died as a result and others were forced to become refugees. One of Africa's challenges was apartheid. Nelson Mandela and other anti-Apartheid leaders struggled for change, and in the late 1980s, the white-run government began to end apartheid. Visit the Web site The Long Walk of Nelson Mandela to learn more about the African leader who worked to end apartheid.
