Condition: See description

Newark, NJ: Unity and Struggle, 1975. First Edition. Paperback. Elusive issue of Unity and Struggle, the successor publication to Black Newark - both important media outlets developed by Amiri Baraka with the aim of promoting Black nationhood in Newark, NJ and throughout the U.S. Under his influence, elements of the Black Arts and Black Power movements merged to create the politics of Black cultural nationalism and the Modern Black Convention movement. Contents of the paper featured a mix of political theory and poetry, with articles on Pan Africanism, Socialism, community building and grassroots activism, political issues (local and national), emplyment, housing, health, education, current events, and incidents of racism and police brutality. Nearly every issue featured Baraka's monthly column Raise!, dedicated to a variety of issues and written with the goal of edifying the Black community in Newark. Throughout its publication history, the papers were variously edited by Abu Ansar, the Black Arts poet and actor Yusef Iman, Daoud Abdullah, and Simba Risasi. Uncommon in the trade, with OCLC showing mostly scattered holdings for both papers across 20 or so institutions. DANKY 934, 6051. Tabloid (41cm); photo-illustrated newsprint wrappers; 12pp; illus. Disbound from larger volume, toned, edgeworn, and dust-soiled, with some old, faint damp-staining, and a long tape mend along horizontal front wrapper fold; Fair to Good, complete issue.
