Letter to Pastor McLeod and Board of Trustees of BeeBee Memorial CME Temple in Oakland asking to use this venue for an event on April 28 to publicly welcome Sam Nujoma, President of the South West African Peoples' Organization, and the accompanying delegation. The tentative program includes presentation to SWAPO of proclamations from the cities of Oakland, Richmond, San Francisco and Berkeley, singing by the Vukani Mawethu Choir, brief remarks from two or three community leaders, and an address by Nujoma. The ad hoc Committee includes members of WITNESS for South Africa, the Bay Area Free South Africa Movement, the Northern California Ecumenical Council (NCEC), the San Francisco Anti-Apartheid Movement, and the Vukani Mawethu Choir. The letter mentions South Africa's illegal occupation of Namibia, the United Nations, the World Court of Justice, Pastor Richard Wallace, and St. Philip Lutheran Church.
