He continues to raise the issues of covert action abroad, and he now incorporates CIA activity in Angola as a primary case study. After extensive interviews with government officials and outside sources, Marks wrote an article detailing U.S. involvement in Angola which was read into the Congressional Record by Cong. Andy Young. The newsletter says Courtland Cox, one of the main contributors to this issue of the Intelligence Report, is Director of the Center's Project on Southern Africa; an expert in African affairs, and a prominent figure in the civil rights movement in the 1960's. Cox was named Secretary General of the Sixth Pan African Congress held in Dar-es-Salaam in June 1974. Cox covers U.S. foreign policy towards all of Southern Africa in his numerous articles and speaking engagements around the country; his work has been made available to the Congressional Black Caucus, the media, and organizations focusing on U.S. policy in Africa.
