NAAWP News (24 issues)

New Orleans: NAAWP, 1980s. The National Association for the Advancement of White People was founded as a white advocacy organization by David Duke in 1980 following his departure from the Ku Klux Klan. Modeled purposely after the NAACP, Duke used the NAAWP to attract a middle class likely to support his political aspirations, which culminated in his surprising election to the Louisiana House of Representatives in 1988. Despite subsequent campaigns for President, Senator and Governor, this would prove to be Duke’s only political appointment.

The NAAWP News featured stories on black crime, integration, racial conflict (e.g., Howard Beach), Duke’s political aspirations, and the plight of white people in a multicultural, multiracial America. Each issue also included long letters from other white activists and advertisements for racialist literature available from Duke’s Americana Books. Issues include nos. 2, 4-5, 14, 34-35, 39, 43-54, 56, 58, 60, 66, and a sampler issue, which was periodically distributed. Most issues include subscriber letters. We’re also including a brochure titled NAACP vs NAAWP: Equal Rights for Whites? that was issued separately. Any issue scarce in the trade.

Tabloid format printed in blue and black on high quality stock & newsprint, various pagination, illus. Half of the issues contain library stamps or penciled call numbers to the front covers, nearly all with subscriber labels to the back page. Item #10400
