Spelman Gives South Africans a Voice

Spelman College launched its campaign against apartheid in 1978 and was the beginning of a seven-year protest of their school’s investment in South Africa. The students interviewed South African students in their school newspaper and hosted them on their campus to speak, in order to bring more awareness to their cause. Despite not having a large endowment, the university board chose to divest in April 1986.  (Photo: Spelman College)
