Demonstration for divestment from companies doing business in apartheid South Africa at Northwestern University organized by the Ad-hoc Group to End Northwestern Investments in South Africa. The demonstration and a related teach-in 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.
