The report says following the Sharpeville massacre in March 1960, ACOA embarked on a vigorous program of protest and aid. An Emergency Action Conference on South Africa resulted in a booklet called "Action Against Apartheid." ACOA worked closely with petitioners and representatives from South West Africa, Angola, South Africa, the Congo, and Ruanda-Urundi. The report mentions Oliver Tambo, Deputy President of the African National Congress in South Africa; Mbyiu Koinange, a leader of the Kenyan African National Union in exile; Michael Scott, Director of the Africa Bureau; Alan Payton, South African author and leader of the Liberal Party; Vusumzi Make of the Pan Africanist Congress; Kenneth Kaunda, President of the United National Independence Party of Northern Rhodesia; Tom Mboya of Kenya; and Holden Roberto of Angola. • Introduction • South Africa • Algeria • At the United Nations: South West Africa, South Africa, Portugal • United Nations Petitioners and Visitors • Working with Government • Literature Program • Speakers Bureau • Africa Freedom Day, Other Special Events • African Students • Organization, Staff, and Office • Officers and Committees • Africa Defense and Aid Fund • ACOA Finances for 1960 • ADAF Finances for 1960 (net)
