The leaflet says E.A.A. singled out several corporations with investments in South Africa; these include AETNA Life and Casualty, MacMillan Publishers, McGraw-Hill Publishers, Readers Digest and Kellogg's; we are conducting a campaign to urge these corporations to divest; so far, AETNA and MacMillan HAVE DIVESTED; we have launched a boycott against McGraw-Hill products because of their most racist and patronizing attitude about Black people in South Africa. The leaflet says our members have organized activities in our classes, schools, and school districts. The leaflet discusses the United Federation of Teachers, the Board of Education, the Teachers Retirement System, the UFT (United Federation of Teachers), Strangers in their own Country by William Bigelow, a curriculum kit about apartheid, elementary school children, a filmstrip and cassette, United Nations Centre Against Apartheid, Clarence Taylor, Paula Bower, and city-wide demonstrations against apartheid. • Divestment • Education • Action [Note on date: McGraw-Hill announced it would divest on February 27, 1987.]
