by American Committee on Africa
New York, New York, United States
November 19, 1955
The press release announces that Peter Abrahams, South African author of Tell Freedom and Mine Boy, will speak at The Community Church of New York about "Timetable for Freedom in South Africa." The welcoming address will be delivered by Congressman Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., who will announce the sending of the first $1,000 raised by the Project Fund of the American Committee on Africa for education in South Africa. The money will be directed to the Reverend Trevor Huddleston of the Anglican Church in South Africa for use by St. Peter's Mission School in Johannesburg. This is one of the few non-government schools remaining open despite the Bantu Education Act, which permits withdrawal of government financial support from all non-government schools that do not support apartheid. The meeting will be chaired by Reverend Donald Harrington of the Community Church.
