Randall Robinson Comments on Ways to Oppose Apartheid
In this clip Randall Robinson of the Southern Africa Relief Fund talks about the steps African Americans can take to combat apartheid, and the need to lobby strenuously to have foreign policy reworked. Overall the program focuses on the oppressive regimes in Southern African countries, particularly South Africa. Host John Slade interviews representatives Christopher Nteta (a South African banned from his country) and Randall Robinson (from the Southern Africa Relief Fund) to talk about their efforts to help Blacks in countries where apartheid is in effect (South Africa, Zimbabwe, Rhodesia, Angola, and Guinea Bissau). The first half of the program consists of a slide show written and produced by the Southern Africa Relief Fund, the second a discussion of what the Fund does and how it is accomplishing its mission. Conversation emphasizes the military aid and business endeavors proffered by the United States and other western/democratic countries that support the minority white regimes in Africa, as well as additional foreign and domestic problems enabling apartheid to continue.
