We're For Africa

April 14, 1985

Bob Geldof is a compassionate man. It was his compassion for Ethiopian famine victims that prompted him to organize the English Band Aid record, and also pushed U.S. artists to act in behalf of Africa's starving.

It is time people stop pitting USA for Africa against its British predecessor (Calendar Letters, April 7). That's what Geldof did when he joined hands with Ken Kragen and Harry Belafonte at the "We Are the World" recording session.

England, America, what does it matter? We are the world!
