Letter to Oregon State University (OSU) President Robert MacVicar saying that the African Students' Association has brought to the attention of the U.S. Region of the Black Consciousness Movement of Azania [BCM(A)] that the University's wrestling team plans to visit South Africa in August. The letter says that BCM(A), speaking as the External Wing of the Azanian People’s Organization (AZAPO), condemns this intended visit and urges MacVicar to dissuade the OSU coach from pursuing it. The letter also discusses artists Ray Charles and Champion Jack Dupree. The letter says AZAPO is currently engaged in a broad-based effort to isolate South Africa internationally, which includes discouraging artists, athletes and sporting figures from visiting South Africa. The letter points out that the Springbok Rugby team is now experiencing serious difficulties in New Zealand.
