The African Studies Association  (ASA)  Racial  “RUPTURE” issue:

In the 1969 ASA annual conference, held in Montreal Canada that year, the African Americans and  Africans walked out, following the members’ rejection of demands from “The ASA Black Caucus” for serious improvement in the representation and recognition of Blacks in the leadership, programs and awards of the Association.
