Collection Summary:

The collection contains 22 folders, documenting many educational campaigns, fundraising campaigns for liberation movements in Southern Africa, and campaigns concerning South Africa, including divestment by the University of Wisconsin. There are 28 issues of the MACSA newsletter and one folder from the Committee on Southern Africa of the First Congregational Church in Madison from 1971 to 1973. The documents cover 1969-1973 and 1975-1978. (MACSA continued throughout this entire period, but the donor did not live in Madison during the entire period and thus did not have a complete collection of materials.) Approximately 50 documents from this collection have been digitized and appear in the African Activist Archive website - http://africanactivist.msu.edu

Historical Background:

The Madison Area Committee on Southern Africa, or MACSA, was an organization comprised of faculty members, students, and citizens in Madison, Wisconsin. MACSA was established in 1968 "to lobby and educate the university and community about Southern Africa, to support sanctions on minority regimes in Southern Africa, and to provide assistance to liberation movements" (African Activist Archive).
