Nates, Tali – Intercultural Education, 2010
Participants in South African educator workshops focusing on teaching the Holocaust and the 1994 genocide in Rwanda frequently declare that apartheid was also genocide.

Music Education, as well as cultural and musical identities are all being renegotiated, post-Apartheid, within the so-called "newer" rather than the commonly known "new" South Africa.

Carignan, Nicole; Pourdavood, Roland; King, Lonnie; Feza, Nosisi – Intercultural Education, 2005
The story of School X started in South Africa in 1875. At that time, the school was built for white children only.
