Leaflet advertising a protest at the Kennedy School of Government on Saturday, October 21 against Harvard University’s role in apartheid. The leaflet says Charles Engelhard's foundation donated $1 million to build the Kennedy School library. Engelhard converted a $20 million inheritance into a quarter billion dollar empire primarily by exploiting black workers, made possible by the South African government policy of apartheid. By commemorating the name of Charles Engelhard, the Kennedy School has chosen to attach value and prestige to the name of a man who has stood for the denial basic freedoms and human rights in South Africa. The leaflet discusses gold mines, accidents, safety, the freedom struggle, and the black majority.
