3.Issues that contributed to the nationalist movements in Africa and India, obviously mainly had to do with independance and breaking apart from colonization. Countries in Africa that were undergoing nationalist movements such as South Africa also had to do with human rights. Africans were fighting to end oppression by foreign people in their own homes. In South Africa several nationalist groups like the African National Congress and the Pan African Congress were formed to help in the fight. Indians were also fighting the same fight in their country. The Indians however protested more peacefully and used strikes and boycotts to show their views on human rights isssues and independance issues as well.
4.The civil rights movements in the U.S. and South Africa obviously both involved black rights. In the U.S. they were fighting against public transit and educational segregation and the right to vote when in South Africa they were fighting for the right to be able to travel freely in their own country. The civil rights movement in the United States was more peacefull but also was met with less violence. The South African civil rights movment was often bloody and harsh laws were passed to opress the blacks even more. Major leaders in these civil rights movements included important historical figures like J.F.K. (U.S.) Nelson Mandela(South Africa) Dr. Martin Luther King (U.S.) Malcolm X (U.S.) and Robert Sobukwe (South Africa)
