[PHOTOS] The Rise and Fall of Apartheid

Scenes from Spike Lee’s School Daze and syndicated A Different World episodes referencing South Africa’s discriminatory Apartheid system might seem both quaint and antiquated in 2012. Yet the country’s White supremacist system of racial segregation—which ruled South Africa from 1948 to 1994—placed a sickening chokehold on the everyday lives of Africans, Coloureds and Asians in the republic for decades.

Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life, on exhibit now at the International Center of Photography in New York City through January 6, compiles over 500 images documenting its legacy of ethnic discrimination.
