Books on display in the Heritage Room on the 5th floor of the Weinberg Memorial Library are related to the South African apartheid.  Take a few minutes out of your busy days to look them over.  Also check out the Helen Suzman exhibit (both exhibits are available until October 25th).  Suzman was a white South African anti-apartheid liberal politician who spent 36 years in Parliament, always fighting-often single handedly- government sanctioned apartheid.
