Zambia:

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.

Very interesting excerpt on Kaunda’s early 1960s visits to the US and Britain here.
