South Africa has been endowed with towering and inspirational figures in her history. In many respects many of these represent the conflicted race and economic colonial history of the country. One might therefore be excused for taking a circumscribed view of that history depending on one's social and political orientation. For good or ill, for better or for worse, they have shaped the history of this land.
