On June 16, 1976, Black school children in Soweto spearheaded a series of demonstrations that became known as the Soweto Uprising. Students protested the introduction of Afrikaans into the school curriculum. Afrikaans is a West German language and the then South African Government attempted to force a 50-50 language instruction mix.

During the Soweto Uprising upwards of 1,000 people lost their lives (and over 4,000 injured) largely students.
