Contents: SOUTH AFRICA TEACH-IN: SU COMMUNITY STUDIES APARTHEID • Special Grants and Fellowships Issue • Calendar • The newsletter reports eight Syracuse University (SU) groups sponsored a major teach-in on apartheid in November as part of an ongoing effort to study South Africa's system of racial segregation. "Teach-In: South Africa" took place on November 2 at Maxwell Hall and featured noted Africa scholars Ann Seidman of Oxfam America and James Turner from Cornell University along with SU faculty and students who have studied South Africa. The teach-in was sponsored by the Afro-American Studies Department, the Foreign and Comparative Studies Program, People for Peace and Justice, Student Afro-American Society, the Coalition to End Racism and Apartheid, the Office of the Dean of Hendricks Chapel, the Office of Development, and the Chancellor's Task Force on South Africa. The newsletter says apartheid has been a major issue on college campuses as students have called for universities to divest themselves of stock in US companies doing business in South Africa. The newsletter discusses U.S. transnational corporations, the Sullivan Principles, the Reagan Administration, Bantustans, Eizens Silins, Associate Professor of Geography John Western, student protests calling for SU to divest, Goodwin Cooke, and Chancellor Melvin Eggers.
