Leaflet about the Delaware Committee Against Racism and Apartheid. The leaflet says the Delaware Committee Against Racism and Apartheid is a multiracial group of religious and community leaders and concerned individuals committed to the abolition of apartheid, and of racism wherever it occurs. The committee was formed in 1985 as the Delaware Committee a Free South Africa. The name was changed in 1989. The committee played a leading role in the passage of an ordinance for divestment by the New Castle County in '86 and in banning South African imports from the Marine Terminal in '87. In 1990 DCARA held its first annual Artists Against Apartheid week-long festival, with the commemoration of SOWETO Day, June 16, as the focal point.
