This brochure advertises a group of related resources: the “Sun City” record album, video, book by Viking-Penguin, and the "Sun City" Teaching Guide by Bill Bigelow, along with Strangers in the Own Country: A Curriculum Guide on South Africa, also by Bigelow. The Sun City album was produced by Little Steven (Steven Van Zandt) and Arthur Baker. The album and related projects were part of the cultural boycott on South Africa. The brochure says 54 popular artists joined Little Steven to sing out against apartheid - from rock to reggae to rap, Bruce Springsteen to Pat Benatar to Herbie Hancock. The artists formed Artists United Against Apartheid for this project. The brochure says artists’ royalties from the Sun City record and related projects go to The Africa Fund to support political prisoners and their families inside South Africa, the cultural and educational needs of South Africans forced into exile, and the educational work of anti-apartheid organizations.
