Randolph talks about impending racial violence in southern Africa following the sweep of anti-colonialism elsewhere in Africa. Randolph commends President Johnson for supporting mandatory United Nations sanctions against the rebel regime of Rhodesia. However, sanctions will not be effective until they are extended to South Africa. Britain has $3.5 billion of investments in South Africa, and the U.S. has $700 million, including more than 200 U.S. companies and major banks, including Chase Manhattan, First National City, Chemical, Bankers Trust, Morgan Guaranty, Manufacturers Hanover Trust, Irving Trust in New York, Continental of Illinois, National Trust and Saving, and First National in Chicago. • Impending Confrontation • President Johnson's Leadership on Africa • Sanctions • Military Force • Britain and Military Force • Black Africans Cannot Win Alone • Fight Against Apartheid • Development Decade • American Negro Leadership Council on Africa
