Professor Ibrahim Abu-Lughod, Professor of Political Science, addressing a teach-in at Northwestern University. The teach-in and related demonstrations were organized in opposition to a May 27-28, 1981 conference on South Africa organized by the Northwestern University administration and sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation to showcase the Rockefeller Foundation's then-recent study purportedly demonstrating the value of continued investment in South Africa as an inhibiting influence on Apartheid. The teach-in was organized by the Ad-hoc Group to End Northwestern Investments in South Africa and cosponsored by Amnesty International, For Members Only, the Program on African Studies, the Ethical Humanist Society and local church groups.
