South Africa: Campus Spring

April 1979
National Review;4/13/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 15, p464
This article criticizes the move of Columbia and Harvard Universities to heed the demand of vocal students and faculty pressure and have withdrawn some of their endowment investments from banks which make loans to South Africa. Other universities in the U.S. have taken actions more than the two Ivy League schools. The decision will impact the lives of black South Africans more that it will impact the apartheid regime in South Africa. It is more important that American investments continue to flow to South Africa.
