Historical Background:

Founded in 1977 at a national conference on Southern Africa at Michigan State University, the Association of Concerned Africa Scholars (ACAS: also known as the Association of Concerned African Scholars), is a group of scholars and students of Africa dedicated to formulating alternative analyses of Africa and U.S. government policy, developing communication and action networks between the peoples and scholars of Africa and the United States, and mobilizing support in the United States on critical, current issues related to Africa.

The papers here include those of Immanuel Wallerstein and Willard Johnson (co-chairs 1977-1991), David Wiley and Jean Sindab (co-chairs 1991-93). and William G. Martin (co-chair 1993-2001). In this latter period, solidarity and apartheid movements came to an end and the transition began to a post-apartheid, post-national liberation movement ­ as evident in holdings on the debt and HIV crises, the National Summit on Africa debates, and ACAS’ own policy workshops. The organization still operates. Publishes ACAS Bulletin.
