Michigan State University students and community members of East Lansing, Michigan, formed the South African Liberation Committee in 1972, one of the first organizations in the country to lead a campaign against the apartheid movement. Because of the group’s efforts, the city became the first in the U.S. to pass a resolution that ended support of businesses that operated in South Africa.
