Racial segregation is the division of a population of a country on grounds of race. The segregation can be social, economic, legal and spatial. The most thorough system of racial segregation in recent times was the apartheid system of South Africa between 1948 and 1994.

Segregation in US public schools was struck down by the Supreme Court in 1954 in Brown v. Board of Education.
