Dompass

Dompass

A man holds up his dompas. Such passes were used as a means of controlling the movement of the majority of South Africans within urban areas. According to apartheid ideology, Black people were only allowed to be in the cities and towns if they carried such pass books. This was part of the Grand Apartheid scheme of Influx Control. Black workers were required to carry their Dompas at all times and were subject to spot checks.
