Have You Heard From Johannesburg?
Story Four, Apartheid And The Club Of The West

The fourth story (in a six part series) traces the complex and fascinating story of the anti-apartheid movement in the United States. The U.S. is a key battleground, with African-Americans at the center of the struggle. The campaigns take place in boardrooms, universities, embassies, and finally in the U.S. Congress itself, where a stunning victory is won against the formidable opposition of President Ronald Reagan. African-Americans, have turned the tide and altered U.S. foreign policy. The U.S., once the backbone of support for the apartheid regime as her ally in the Cold War, finally imposes sanctions on Pretoria. European sanctions follow, and with them, the political isolation of the apartheid regime.
