Mailing with a cover letter and two leaflets about the visit to Seattle by Mike Kenyon, a rural fieldworker in the Eastern Cape for the Grahamstown Rural Committee and the main link to Seattle’s sister community of Daliwe, South Africa. For the past three years, Mike Kenyon has worked extensively with communities that have resisted incorporation into the Ciskei bantustan. One leaflet announces a city-wide event at New Hope Baptist Church, “Forced Removals in South Africa: A Forum on Land Rights.” The cover letter invites people to a potluck prior to the forum to learn more about Daliwe and other townships in the Border region and understand where we should be aiming as a sister community. The letter says Kenyon will also participate in some interviews and look at the land rights of local Native Americans. A second leaflet advertises a panel discussion on October 10 at University Congregational Church with Mike Kenyon, Michael Nixon, and Fred Dube, who will discuss ANC (African National Congress), Inkatha, forced removals of South Africans, and Seattle’s involvement in Sister Communities. The letter invites people to contact Sharon Henderson, Marjorie Prince, or Michael Mann with any questions.
