Photo of anti-apartheid activist Prexy Nesbitt of C.I.D.S.A. (CIDSA, Coalition for Illinois' Divestment from South Africa) and TransAfrica talking at an event sponsored by the George A. Miller Committee, the Champaign-Urbana Coalition Against Apartheid, the Divest Now Coalition, the Student Leadership Panel of the Y.W.C.A., the Urbana Public Action Committee on Education, African Studies, the African Students Organization and SORF (Student Organization Resource Fund). This photograph was digitized by Jeff Machota who provided it to the African Activist Archive Project.
