An exploration of a sample of South African caregivers’ experiences of apartheid
MetadataShow full item record
Apartheid created deep-rooted emotional scars of inequality, discrimination, and racial tension within the South African population. Literature regarding the population of contemporary South Africans remains, to some extent, divided by racial lines (Naidoo, Stanwix, & Yu, 2016; Harris, 2016). Since caregivers are the main socialisation agents influencing adolescents this research study sought to explore caregivers’ experiences of apartheid as a means to create an understanding of the views and perspectives of apartheid that are relayed by South African caregivers to their children.
