On Jan. 8, 2012, South Africa’s beloved African National Congress will commemorate its 100-year anniversary, celebrating its accomplishments toward breaking the chains of racial segregation and oppression of Black South Africans by the white-ruled Apartheid government and bringing racial harmony to the people. Many African-American activists and politicians in America spoke out against apartheid rule, some even meeting with Nelson Mandela, the ANC leader who was jailed for 27 years for his participation in the struggle for freedom and would later become South Africa’s first Black president in 1994. Artists such as Herbie Hancock, Kool DJ Herc and Miles Davis even lent their talents to the Artists United Against Apartheid's Sun City album, a collection of protest songs. Here is a rundown of other prominent African-Americans who fought for racial equality in South Africa.—Britt Middleton
