The press release says a program to raise public consciousness and increase solidarity among opponents of apartheid in South Africa has been launched by a new Michigan-based not-for-profit corporation, International Possibilities Unlimited. It encourages participants to wear a bracelet with the name of a political prisoner currently being held in South Africa. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Free South Africa Movement, for their leadership in the current anti-apartheid efforts in the United States, and to International Defense and Aid Fund, for their long standing involvement in the defense of, and aid to, political prisoners in South Africa and their families. A brochure describing the system of apartheid, the plight of political prisoners in South Africa, and other ways to support the anti-apartheid movement is included with each bracelet. The organization aims to increase communication, understanding and solidarity among blacks in the African diaspora as well as increase the general population's understanding of and solidarity with issues concerning black people worldwide. International Possibilities Unlimited is headed by Debbie Robinson, a University of Michigan graduate student, and three U-M faculty members, Profs. Walter Allen, Leonard Suransky, and Alfred Edwards.
