Notes:
- The rich diamond mines of Kimberley and gold discoveries on the Witwatersrand, changed South Africa virtually overnight, from a backward area into one of the world's richest countries.

- Archbishop Desmond Tutu's racial harmony message was, " Let us be channels of love, of peace, of reconciliation. Let us declare that we have been made for family, that, yes, now we are free, all of us, black and white together, we, the Rainbow People of God."

- The word Apartheid" stands for segregation of various races and separate development programs. Apartheid's core policy was created by British policies of the early 1900s.

- Much of South Africa's territory, beyond the metropolitan areas, seems almost empty. For example, great stretches of the Kalahari are virtually uninhabitable. Grazing lands and farms in the Karoo and Free State occupy vast areas. Settlements are spread sparsely along the watercourses.
