Images of Dr. Kenneth Kaunda’s visit to the US in 1960.

Dr. Kenneth Kaunda visited places such as Washington, DC and Atlanta with Dr. Martin Luther King.  Together they made a joint statement against US investment in apartheid South Africa. Kaunda was then the former leader of the United National Independence Party which later led Zambia to independence.
