Mailing on the First Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Symposium on Southern Africa sponsored by The Washington Office on Africa Educational Fund in cooperation with the Coalition for a New Foreign Policy, WPFW Radio, and the National Public Radio Satellite Fund. Damu Smith, the newly appointed Director of the Washington Office on Africa Educational Fund (WOAEF) invites people to the symposium, entitled "Total Strategy": Apartheid's Regional War. The symposium aims to trace the development of South Africa's "total strategy" policy of destabilization in southern Africa and to analyze its political, economic and social consequences for the region. In 1986, the WOAEF, the research arm of the Free South Africa Movement (FSAM), launched the Spotlight on Apartheid in Southern Africa Campaign, designed to present apartheid in a regional context. The symposium is a response to an increasing demand from Congress, media, clergy, anti-apartheid activists, the general public and others for current, detailed information not only about South Africa but also about its destabilizing role in the entire southern Africa region. A number of southern Africa representatives, experts and activists are confirmed as panelists for the symposium, to be held at the beginning of the 100th Congress, in which legislators will consider aid to the Southern African Development Coordination Conference (SADCC), along with other southern Africa policy initiatives. The Symposium is to be held at Shiloh Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.
