The Anti-Apartheid Movement of the USA (AAMUSA) was formed in late 1975. AAMUSA worked with African liberation groups and aimed to build an effective organized support apparatus in the United States that would oppose U.S. involvement in Southern Africa. AAMUSA sought to link struggles for liberation in the U.S. with those in Southern Africa. Chapters existed in Washington, DC; Baltimore, Maryland; and Gary Indiana.
