dc.description The scrapbook documents the protest and educational campaign led by the OSU African Students Association (ASA) in response to wrestling coach Dale Thomas’ association with the South African wrestling community. Thomas’ hosting of visiting South African coaches and proposed team tour of the country drew fire because of an international ban upon competition with South African athletes as a protest of the racist apartheid political system. en_US
