: Racism, Tribalism, Nationalism and Path to Reconciliation in the South Sudanese community in Calgary

Mount Royal University
History of Southern Sudan

Sudan gained independence in 1956 from British and Egyptian rule. Under the Khartoum regime, there was no place for the Southern Sudanese African. The Southern region of Sudan was intended for slavery, agriculture and oil. The Khartoum government viewed Southerners as inferior, sub-human, savages, and slaves. The Southern region has good soil, large oil deposits and land compared to the desert North Sudan.
