Proudly We Can Be Africans

This chapter examines African Americans' engagement with African resistance to white supremacy in South Africa. African freedom struggles, in particular the Defiance Campaign against apartheid and the white minority government, became sources of inspiration to African Americans, helping to reverse negative images of Africa, establish an “African lobby” in the civil rights community, and reconfigure the role of contemporary Africa in the lives of black Americans.
