Robert Lenzner, reporter for the Boston Globe, talks about his involvement in uncovering the story about Polaroid's South African distributor violating the terms of Polaroid's policy not to sell to the South African Government that ultimately led to Polaroid's decision on November 21, 1977 to cut off all business ties with South Africa, making it the first major American firm to withdraw from the country for political reasons.
