Speakers included Sharfudine Khan, U.S. representative of the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO); Dennis Brutus, South Africa poet in exile and former political prisoner; and Bob Van Lierop, Afro-American lawyer who traveled with FRELIMO in summer 1971. "A Luta Continua," van Lierop’s film about Mozambique, was to be shown. The dance featuring African music was a benefit for the Organization of Angolan Women. The leaflet also advertised a series of three workshop sponsored by: Chicago Committee for the Liberation of Angola, Mozambique and Guinea; United Front Against Imperialism; Chicago Anti-Imperialist Collective; Southern African Liberation and Information Group; Ethiopian Student Union of Chicago; Iranian Students Association; Revolutionary Union; Red Star League; People's Voice; Fight Back!; Sojourner Truth; Chicago Women's Liberation Union; Jackson Organization; Seminarians Organized for Peace & Justice; New American Movement; Southern Africa Task Force (United Church of Christ); and Chicago Area Group on Latin America. Some sponsoring organizations were associated with the New World Resource Center, where the workshops were held. [Note about date: November 19 was on a Sunday in 1974.]
