The Apartheid took place mostly within the country of South Africa along with a few minor independent city states such as Peoria and other countries in the vicinity of South Africa. It also took place internationally.
How the Apartheid fell was a chain link of events. The early stages of the demise began around the early 1900s when new laws were placed out and riots broke out in the streets. When the Apartheid outlawed and banned the African National Congress (ANC) as well as sent many of its leaders to prison by convicting them of treason, including Nelson Mandela, the black community of South Africa were outraged.
