Hundreds of men living in close quarters
The whites who ruled South Africa didn’t want Black South Africans to move into the

13% of the land was reserved for Black South Africans only, while 87% went to the whites
Laws segregating urban areas
Pass laws extended
Restricting Black South Africans in town – they had to have a reason and pass to be in a
town
Migrant labor expanded (rural areas declined)
Apartheid (post 1948)
Racially divided ‘townships’ begun 1920s, expanded 1950s/1960s

“White-run”, this didn’t matter as the black people had no land and had to continue to travel
out to “White land” to work for the White people
