  1. PC: the United Party wins the 1953 election in South Africa?

    I've had a sudden interest in mid 20th century South Africa lately, so I've been doing some research on the topic, focused mostly on looking for PODs that may lead to an earlier end of apartheid. Naturally, this involves getting the National Party out of power sooner (or, better yet, stopping...
  2. South Africa WI: the United Party returns to power in 1961?

    After their (frankly ridiculous) loss in the 1948 election, the United Party of South Africa would never again regain its former prominence. Instead, the number of seats it held in parliament shrank further and further as the years went by, while the National Party consolidated its grip on power...
  3. Could Rhodesia-Nyasaland stay together?

    Like it says on the tin. The Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, also known as the Central African Federation, existed from 1953 to 1963, and was fiercely criticized by African nationalist leaders within its territory, who saw its creation as a way to extend the life of British colonialism in...
  4. Other Countries with Bantustan analogues

    Which countries other than Apartheid South Africa could have implemented an analogue to the Bantustan system? they do not need to work identically as they did in South Africa, but can be similar, as in, a country hates certain ethnic groups to the extent that we do not want to even assimilate...

    AHC: Civil Rights wank

    (I wasn’t sure where to put this so I decided pre-1900.) From 1865 onwards (or sometime earlier if you want too) and beyond make the Civil Rights movements and other similar progressive movements relating to civil and human rights (African Americans, women, native Americans, Asian Americans...

    Civil Rights Act of 1964 Only Applies to Public Institutions, When Does The South Desegregate?

    Let's say that, in this alternate timeline, the Civil Rights Act of 1964's prohibitions on racial discrimination only apply to public institutions, rather than to both public and private institutions. Let's also say that no federal legislation prohibiting private discriminations on the basis of...

    AHC: Federal segregation 1880-1930

    Is there any scenario you think some kind of federal segregation could have been imposed by Congress between 1880 and 1930. I imagine it'd also have to be during a period of Democratic political dominance.
  8. Does Your Conscience Bother You?- A George Wallace Victory TL
    Threadmarks: Chapter 1: In Miami Beach, they Love the Governor: Wallace in the 1972 Primary

    This is my first foray into writing an AH TL, so feel free to leave any feedback on this first chapter. I'd love for this to be a collaborative deal, so leave any ideas or suggestions below! I'm foreseeing this TL getting a little wild as things progress and I plan to use the polling feature...
  9. South Africa abolishes apartheid in the 1960s?

    Let's say that, through a series of PODs starting in the 1950s, such as the Progressive Party not forming and South Africa remaining a monarchy in the 1960 referendum (the margin was quite narrow, after all), the United Party, led by De Villiers Graaff, returns to power in the 1961 election...
  10. Viva la Revolución: a trotskyist Mexico

    On December 1, 1934, Manuel Pérez Treviño, general and leader of the Mexican Revolution, took office as President of Mexico. As the candidate of the National Revolutionary Party (PNR), Treviño's election was a foregone conclusion. It was politically impossible for its patron, Plutarco Elías...
  11. The US civil service isn't segregated?

    What if the US bureaucracy wasn't segregated in the 1910s? Say Woodrow Wilson doesn't get elected or that he doesn't impose Jim Crow in the civil service for whatever reason. How would race relations and civil rights evolve from then on? Could something like the Civil Rights Act be passed...
  12. The destruction of the Segregationist America

    This is something i'm going to need a lot of help with, here's the idea: Has there been anytime in which a major segregationist was close to the senate or to a vice/presidency? Because if there is here is my idea. It would have to take place in either the 40s, 50s, 30s, 20s, and 10s, no time...
  13. Segregation in a Confederate Victory

    If the Confederates had won the Civil War, what effect would it have on segregation in the remaining Union states? The states of Missouri, Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware all had jim crow laws, would they be allowed to still do so when a third of the country split off for the...
  14. The Stand-Off at the Schoolhouse Door

    The Stand-Off at the Schoolhouse Door took place at Foster Auditorium at the University of Alabama on June 11, 1963. George Wallace, the Governor of Alabama, in a symbolic attempt to keep his inaugural promise of "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" and stop the...
  15. North Carolina avoids Jim Crow?

    Since this is the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries I'll put the WI here. In 1896, decades after the end of Reconstruction, the state of North Carolina elected Daniel Lindsay Russell, a Republican, to the governorship by a margin of less than ten thousand votes. Russell, who had a majority in...
  16. Possible to change majority identity of a territory post-1600?

    Hi all, I have been thinking recently about ATLs and whether it is possible to have territories flip their majority identity with a relatively late POD. In OTL, there have been many attempts at doing this via discriminatory policy and land reform, such as Ireland, Finland, Algeria, Tunisia...
  17. Rhodesia/Angola/Mozambique/South Africa Alternate History

    I wanted to imagine how these countries might have survived into the present day. My POD's would be Slightly earlier settlement of Angola and Mozambique, so that they have a slightly larger white population. I saw another thread imagining something like this called Angola Avante . Portugal...
  18. Consequences of no world wars on mass immigration to the US

    What would be the consequences of no world wars on the flow of European immigrants to the US? By 1914 most immigrants were either from Southern or Eastern Europe, how does this fact effects the ethnic makeup of the us? Would the great migration of African Americans be severely slowed or delayed...
