"Turning Point 2" focuses on the imposition of colonialism and explores its impact on African societies. Colonialism is often viewed as an overwhelming force that devastated Africa. However, it is equally important to highlight the various ways in which Africans shaped colonialism. This is not to deny the negative impact of colonialism, but to show that its power was contested and that it transformed Africa to varying degrees over time. The first chapter offers an overview of colonialism. It discusses three models that operated between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries in different parts of what later became South Africa. The second chapter focuses on the development in the Cape of a colonial slave society, one of the models identified in chapter 1. In the final chapter, the focus remains on the colonial slave society that developed in the first colony at the Cape - one that fell under the Slavery and Forced Labour Model of colonialism. It examines the various ways slaves tried to maintain their humanity against the heavy odds of colonial slave power and shows how slavery has left an important legacy to the present.
