Mailing from Kathy Devine to friends who have contributed toward trip to South Africa March 6-26 by Devine and Cole Wright, both of whom were members of the Illinois Labor Network Against Apartheid (ILNAA). Devine and Wright planned to visit Durban, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Soweto and Alexandra townships, and perhaps some rural area to meet workers in various industries, as well as visiting people with whom we worked in the anti-apartheid movement. The mailing points out that much work remains to be done in South Africa, while, in the U.S., the problem of racism still stubbornly persists and in some ways is getting worse; perhaps we can learn a few lessons from South Africa on how to move ahead in the U.S. Devine and Wright promise to report back on their trip when they return.
