civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., visited South Africa.

So it was basically through this determinism - found both in social science and religion - that apartheid was justified."The system decreed that black Africans should be unable to move freely into urban areas.

But apartheid was more than just a brutal power game.

South African political expert Stanley Uys believes it was at this moment that apartheid was born.

"Their churches found theological justification for apartheid.

The TAZARA (Tanzania Zambia Railway Authority), or Freedom Railway, from Dar es Salaam on the Tanzanian coast to the Copperbelt region of Zambia, was instrumental in fostering one of the most sweeping development transitions in postcolonial Africa. Built during the height of the Cold War, the railway was intended to redirect the mineral wealth of the interior away from routes through South Africa and Rhodesia. Rebuffed by Western aid agencies, newly independent Tanzania and Zambia accepted help from China to construct what would become one of Africa's most vital transportation corridors. The book follows the railroad from design and construction to its daily use as a vital means for moving villagers and goods. It tells a story of how transnational interests contributed to environmental change, population movements, and the rise of local and regional enterprise.

The incident provoked outrage in South Africa and beyond.
