ART AGAINST APARTHEID is an independent, multiracial and politically diverse coalition of artists working in the United States, who are committed to democratic ideals and the principle of racial equality. Out of this commitment, we feel a responsibility to speak out, through our art, against institutionalized racial discrimination in South Africa - the apartheid system. Our goal is to raise the consciousness of Americans about the inherent evil and practical effects of apartheid, through the media of art and culture. Our dream is that one day a free South Africa will be won, in which all people are equal before the law, and in which no group imposes its will on any other on the basis of race or color.
