Today, the USA - ANC Centenary Committee hosted a launch event at the National Press Club to detail its plans and activities for the 100-year celebration to be marked in 2012. 

The overall goal of the USA-ANC Centenary Committee is to coordinate ANC centennial activities in the United States, acting as the chief liaison between regional groups, the South African Embassy and the ANC. The USA-ANC Centenary Celebrations highlight the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa and serve as a celebration of other continent-wide, anti-colonial movements.

The Committee members include Dr. Joseph Harris, Dr. Jean Bailey, Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte, James Early, Nicole Lee TransAfrica Forum and Dr. Elsie Scott.

The United States shares with South Africa a number of important historical and contemporary milestones in the long struggle for human rights.  It is, therefore, appropriate that the U.S.  participate in the ANC Centenary for 2012.
