The biography says Prexy Nesbitt is the senior consultant in the U.S. for the government of the People's Republic of Mozambique. He was previously associate director of the American Committee on Africa, a board member of TransAfrica, and chair of the state-wide Coalition Illinois Divestment from South Africa (CIDSA). During 1986-87, he worked as an aid to the late Harold Washington, Mayor of Chicago. The biography says that, while a student at Antioch College, Nesbitt initiated the movement to have Antioch divest from South Africa's apartheid system. Nesbitt has been to Africa 35 times, most recently in April 1990 to visit Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The biography mentions the World Council of Churches' Program to Combat Racism, Clergy and Laity Concerned, the Washington Office on Africa, and Global Exchange.
