The Black Consciousness movement

While the Black Consciousness (BC) movement that emerged in the 1960s was distinct, it was nevertheless an integral part of an evolution of black resistance stretching back to colonial times. The distinctiveness of the BC movement lay in its incorporation of growing numbers of black university students, its interaction with the National Union of South African Students (Nusas) as an anti-apartheid student group, and its response to the relentlessness of discriminatory practices at the hands of an increasingly confident white government.
