Cornelius Moore discusses Africa liberation support work he was involved in from the early 1970s to 2003. In Philadelphia, he worked with the African Liberation Support Committee in 1974-75 and with United People's Campaign Against Apartheid and Racism (UPCAAR) beginning in the late 1970s. Campaigns with UPCAAR included a campaign against a bank that was lending to South Africa and redlining black communities in the U.S., a speakers' tour for the South African Military Refugee Aid Fund (SAMRAF) and SWAPO Women's League, and a premiere showing of O Povo Organizado that raised funds for health projects in Mozambique. Moore cooperated with the Mozambique Film Project to promote this film as a staff member of the Neighborhood Film Project in Philadelphia. Moore moved to California and became the staff person for the Southern Africa Media Project of California Newsreel, which was a resource to organizations for using films about Southern Africa to build their southern Africa support work. He also discusses support work in 2003 for the Treatment Action Campaign about HIV/AIDS in South Africa.
