Leaflet about a tour of Tapson A. Mawere, Chief Representative of the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU), in February and March 1975, which apparently included Birmingham, Alabama; Jackson, Mississippi; Chicago, Illinois; Lexington, Kentucky; other cities. The leaflet was apparently distributed to local organizers to use for publicizing events in their cities. The leaflet says ZANU is the strongest force fighting for freedom, independence, and majority rule in what is presently called "Rhodesia.” The leaflet discusses the Zimbabwe African National Liberation Army (ZANLA), the Rhodesian African National Congress, the National Democratic Party, the Zimbabwe African People's Union (ZAPU), Cornell University, and the African Student’s Association. Eileen Whalen played an important role in organizing the tour. This leaflet was created by Ken Lawrence.
