[SUBJECT: US INVESTMENTS AND APARTHEID]
(Vol II Program no. 39 (re-run))
by The Rest of the News
Ithaca, New York, United States
Undated, apparently late July or early August 1975
The mailing to subscribers describes the audio tape for the week of August 3, which is a rerun of a Rest of the News program about U.S. investments and Apartheid. The mailing provides some background information about apartheid and mentions that, in November, South Africa was suspended from the General Assembly of the United Nations. This program interviews Thami Mhlambiso, UN representative of the African National Congress (ANC), the chief resistance organization in South Africa. Also David de Beer, a white South African "banned" by the South African government, describes his experience of repression. The music heard on the program is N'Kosi Sikeleli Afrika, the anthem of the ANC as well as of the African countries Tanzania and Zambia. [Note: The song is often spelled “Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika.”]
