GM's support of Rev. Leon Sullivan's "Statement of Principles" has been the object of both praise and criticism. The original goal of the "statement," as a code of conduct for companies, is to achieve the equal treatment of workers of all races in South Africa. As a foreign based enterprise, GM also campaigns against apartheid through providing scholarships, promoting an adopt-a-school program, and initiating Black private enterprise. The following study examines specifically the "Sullivan Principles" in light of current political change within the Republic of South Africa.
