    Apartheid refers to the system of racial segregation and discrimination that was enforced in South Africa. It was officially abolished in 1990. This marked a significant turning point in South African history, as it signaled the end of the oppressive policies that had been in place for decades. The year 1990 is significant because it was the year that Nelson Mandela was released from prison after serving 27 years for his anti-apartheid activism. Mandela's release and subsequent negotiations with the government led to the dismantling of apartheid and the beginning of a new era of democracy in South Africa.
