Leaflet advertising a “Sing Out against Apartheid” on January 21, 1991 at the South African consulate in Chicago, to commemorate Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday and his call for a swift and unstinting response to the suffering in South Africa. Although Nelson Mandela was released from prison in 1990, he cannot vote in his own country - apartheid is still alive. Remember Dr. King's work for freedom by calling for freedom for all South Africans. Cosponsors are the Chicago Committee in Solidarity with Southern Africa, Church of the Brethren Southern Africa Network, Chicago-Alexandra Sister Community Project, and Transafrica.
