Advance announcement of the NATIONAL CONFERENCE: SOUTH AFRICAN CRISIS AND AMERICAN ACTION to be held March 21-23, 1965 in Washington, D.C. While a growing number of American organizations recognize that South Africa’s apartheid policies represent a threat to peace and human rights, there has been no national gathering to examine South African racism and the grounds for opposing it and to develop a program of action. The conference program is included. [Note: The conference was sponsored by 38 national organizations and commemorated the Sharpeville Massacre by convening on March 21. The American Committee on Africa, acting as the Secretariat for the Consultative Council on South Africa, organized the conference. Organizations not named include Southern Africa Committee and others.]
