The newsletter includes a CALENDAR OF EVENTS. The newsletter advertises a talk and slideshow The Crisis in Southern Africa: S. Africa's Destabilization of the Front Line States on May 19 at the Riverside Church by Frank Dexter Brown. The newsletter advertises an Educators Against Apartheid Curriculum Writing Workshop on May 22. The leaflet says on JUNE 14 there will be a tremendous march against apartheid. The newsletter asks people to urge your N.Y.C. Councilperson to support Ruth Messinger's bill calling on the City Council to declare June 16th Soweto Day and on the Board of Education to encourage activities about apartheid in the schools that day. The newsletter says a delegation from E.A.A. will meet with representatives from McGraw-Hill to urge them to divest. The newsletter asks people to continue to write to the Board of Education (Chancellor Quinones) and the United Federation of Teachers Executive Board to urge them to adopt a policy of FULL divestment and to join the boycott of Coke, Shell, and Beatrice Corporations to put pressure on them to divest NOW. The newsletter says Dr. Sandra Shepherd, pediatrician from Montifiore Hospital presented a slide talk at our last meeting; she showed the impact of apartheid on health care in Mozambique and S. Africa. The newsletter includes the slogans FREE NELSON MANDELA and FREE YOUNG CHILDREN IN JAIL FOR THEIR ANTI-APARTHEID ACTIVITIES. The newsletter discusses the pass laws, "independent homelands", educational forums, Nelson Mandela, Hunter College, and the Front Line State Media Project.
