Rhodesia Declares Independence
Rhodesia declared its independence from Great Britain, in defiance of the British government. Rhodesia's government, led by Ian Smith, was all white in a country that was overwhelmingly black. Great Britain declared the act treasonable and immediately applied economic sanctions that were expanded by the United Nations.
