Martin Luther King actively supported the struggle of the South African
people against apartheid. In 1963 the UN Special Committee against Apartheid was established and one of the first letters the committee received was from Martin Luther King, according to Nigerian ambassador Leslie O. Harriman. Together with the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1960, the ANC leader Chief Albert J. Lutuli, Martin Luther King made an ‘Appeal for Action against Apartheid’ on Human Rights Day, 10 December 1962. King Institute founder Clayborne Carson collaborated with producer Connie Field on the documentary Have You Heard from Johannesburg? “The anti-apartheid movement has connections with King.” Carson noted. “Not only did the success of the African American voting rights struggle help pave the way for the achievements of the African National Congress, but also the U.S. congressional Black Caucus was crucial in passing the legislation that
established the official anti-apartheid foreign policy for the U.S. government,” he said.
