Between 1977 and 1994, more than 125 US companies committed to eradicating apartheid in their South African operations and working towards dismantling the oppressive system. Signing on to the Sullivan Principles was a bold step for big business in America and a massive mindset shift for white managers tasked with implementing equality in the workplace and social upliftment in communities. But their efforts were at odds with the ANC in exile’s call for sanctions and with much of the divestment movement in the US. Candid interviews with signatory executives, political analysts and legendary activists bring to life the complexities of this untold story which straddles both sides of the Atlantic.
