Before the Black Lives Matter Movement, there was the Free South Africa Movement. Chicago activists played a major role in putting pressure on the South African, Illinois and Chicago governments to end their support of apartheid. This activism led to Nelson Mandela’s release and his 1993 visit to Chicago.
