Black Perspective, January '72

Oakland / Staten Island: Black Perspective, 1972. First edition. Tabloid format printed in black on newsprint, 16 pp, illus. A single (the first? the only?) issue of this radical black periodical. Content includes an article on drug pushers in the black community, an in-depth interview with Kathleen Cleaver, Eldridge Cleaver's "After Malcolm," an open letter from one of the editors to Angela Davis, an article by Lionel Hodge on the "Black Matriarchal Institution," Attica, Cairo, various LNS reprints, poetry, and more. We could find nothing consequential about the two editors. Samuels' address is Staten Island Community College and Thompson's was Merritt Community College in Oakland. An impressive cross-country joint effort and a professional looking and edited publication. Not in DANKY and no record in OCLC. Truly one that fell through the cracks. (Not to be confused by the journal of the same name and published the same year by Journalists on the Black Perspective or "Black Perspectives," the Univ of Michigan student black newspaper). A Fine copy with center fold as issued. Item #05540
