Statement by Jonathan Demme for Filmmakers United Against Apartheid (FUAA) about the creation of the "A.F.R.I.C.A." song and video by STETSASONIC, with the Reverend Jesse Jackson and Olatunji. Demme describes the song as "a thrilling, creative and educational arrival to the battlefront of the war now being waged in South Africa between the spirit of freedom and the obscenity of Apartheid."
