The documentary Have You Heard From Johannesburg?: Apartheid and the Club of the West, directed by Connie Field (The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter, 1980), explores how Americans of conscience banded together to challenge their nation's support of a racist government. This film follows the formation of the grassroots movement among politicians, activists, and community leaders, which eventually succeeded in imposing sanctions on the government of South Africa.

This screening was followed by a brief panel discussion featuring Adwoa Dunn-Mouton, consulting project manager of the Congressional Staff Forum on Africa for the Wilson Center's Africa Program, Howard Wolpe, Director of the Africa Program, who both appear in the film, and Steve McDonald, consulting program director for the Africa Program.
