80s45. ‘Support the cultural boycott!’
Controversy surrounded singer Paul Simon’s visit to South Africa to record the album Graceland, released in 1986. The AAM and Artists Against Apartheid condemned it as a breach of the cultural boycott. The UN Special Committee Against Apartheid placed Paul Simon on its register of artists who had broken the boycott. Paul Simon defended himself on the grounds that the album showcased the talents of black South African musicians. This leaflet advertised a protest outside a concert by Paul Simon at the Royal Albert Hall in April 1987.
