Members of Artists and Athletes Against Apartheid refused to go to or perform in South Africa until apartheid was dismantled. The co-chairpersons were Arthur Ashe and Horry 8elofonte. Some 500 artists and athletes were members. The organization operated out of the office of TransAfrica. (Source: documents of Artists and Athletes Against Apartheid.)
