Attractive run of this short-lived Black liberation journal, published in Berkeley in the years of 1968 and 1969. Their "Statement of Purpose" clearly delineates the journal's goals and contents: "Black Politics is an independent journal whose purpose is to provide a forum for vanguard theories and ideas that deal with currently crucial issues. We support the liberation struggles of the oppressed masses of the world...We are a part of the Black liberation movement and believe that freedom, justice and equality must be attained by those means that the oppressed think necessary." Indeed, the contents are deeply sympathetic toward the cause of the Black Panther Party, with issue no.4-5 devoted to Huey P. Newton. Contributors include George Prosser, Stokely Carmichael, Robert F. Williams, Richard Assegai, Eldridge Cleaver, and others. DANKY 970.
