Leaflet advertising a demonstration in Newark, New Jersey protesting the National Conference of Christians and Jews giving a Brotherhood Award to Charles W. Engelhard. The leaflet says Engelhard is the single most influential U.S. investor in South African economy, directly controlling 15% of gold production and 20% of uranium production. After the Sharpeville Massacre in 1960 when overseas investors were deserting South Africa, Engelhard arranged a $3O million loan in the U.S., thus averting a major financial crisis. The leaflet says sponsors of the demonstration are the American Committee on Africa, Students for a Democratic Society, and Newark CORE (Congress of Racial Equality).
