I am a senior American Studies major here at Stanford and recently took Dr. Carson's class on "The Modern Tradition of Nonviolent Resistance." As part of the final project for the class, I researched the history of the U.S. Anti-Apartheid Movement, charting a number of the various grassroots organizations and efforts which comprised it in the lead-up to the 1986 passage of the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act, as well as looking more broadly at U.S. foreign policy towards South Africa during this time. As such, I've attached a document which includes an outline of this history, as well as a section on its situation within nonviolent resistance. My project was relegated to American anti-apartheid efforts, but for those interested in a broader history of this movement, I encourage looking at Jenna Queenan's timeline of international anti-apartheid events, posted a couple months back. Here's the link: http://gandhiking.ning.com/forum/topics/south-african-antiapartheid
. I hope some find this informative and intriguing. Please feel free to propose amendments or additions, as I will look to be revising it over time. Thanks!
