Stapled, cream wraps with black titles and photographic image of Baraka. Some aging on edges. Middle staple not applied; front wrap pulled from bottom staple. Still in attractive condition; Photograph of Amiri Baraka; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 8 pages; These booklets reflect the views of Amiri Baraka in the early 1970's when he was heavily influenced by the Kawaida philosophy of Dr. Maulana Karenga. This philosophy espoused a re-Africanization of black people with a kind of worldwide unity among them. They also reflect Baraka's connections with the Congress of African People and later The Revolutionary Communist League. This booklet offers a full discussion of Baraka's view of Kawaida. It is a hard-to-find ephemeral work by Baraka. All of these booklets that we have come from the collection of Charley Shively, a radical activist beginning in the 1960's. He was a poet, editor of publications like Fag Rag, and the owner of Gay Sunshine Press. He was a professor at Boston State and the University of Massachusetts. He was also a collector, and in later years, something of a hoarder. Not in Blockson.
