About this title


"We were the first university with a significant endowment to resolve to divest its investments in companies doing business in apartheid South Africa." —Michael I. Sovern President Emeritus Columbia University An Improbable Life: My 60 Years at Columbia and Other Adventures From a backyard basketball court in Compton, California, to the frontline of the movement to end apartheid in South Africa, Daniel Armstrong chronicles his personal experiences as collegiate athlete and political activist at Columbia University in the 1980s. His story is one of initiative, resiliency, and determination, growing from an individual voice speaking out for a noble cause into the Coalition for a Free South Africa, whose divestment campaign inspired anti-apartheid protests on college campuses across the U.S. Armstrong provides an insider’s view of the years leading up to Columbia University’s decision to divest funds from corporations with operations in apartheid South Africa. This inspirational story is as much an account of history as it is a testament to how one person can spark a movement that can help change the world.

About the Author:

Daniel Armstrong is a dream coach, author and motivational speaker. Daniel’s mission is to inspire and mentor, both youth and adults, to pursue and actualize their dreams. Daniel Armstrong earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Columbia University in New York City. At Columbia, Armstrong was the founding chairman of the Coalition for a Free South Africa, an organization whose four-year campaign resulted in Columbia divesting from corporations operating in apartheid South Africa. Armstrong earned his Master’s degree in Business Administration and Juris Doctorate both from UCLA. He is also a Ford Foundation Fellow, having studied youth development in Zimbabwe, where he organized a national tour by the Harlem Magicians, an American basketball team. The tour’s opening night game was the largest multi-racial gathering, at that point, in Zimbabwe’s then brief history, following twenty years of civil war.
