Following Afrikaner political ascendance in 1951, the Corporation ceased grantmaking in South Africa for more than two decades. The Second Carnegie Inquiry into Poverty and Development in Southern Africa (the first one, focused on the poor white population, was conducted in the 1930s) created to examine the legacies of apartheid and to make recommendations on achieving a democratic, interracial society, was started in the mid-1970s. One of the projects, funded by the Inquiry, this collection of 136 pictures taken by 20 South African photographers poignantly documents the evils of apartheid. It is accompanied by valuable text from presentations made at Carnegie-sponsored 1984 Cape Town conference.
