UNC Chapel Hill Students Push for Full Divestment

Anti-apartheid demonstrators at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill refused to accept the board’s partial divestment in South Africa. On April 1986, the group built a shantytown on campus and vowed to live there until the school completely divested.  The shanties were ordered to be taken down, but in October 1987, the school cut all investments in South African businesses. (Photo: Shawn Rocco/Landov/Raleigh News & Observer/MCT)
