About this Item

Side folding newspaper, with a single center horizontal fold, believed as issued. 17 ¼ by 11 ¾ inches. 16 pages, with black and white photos and illustrations throughout. A singles issue of this underground/alternative newspaper. Perhaps notable for the article 'Common Cause' by James A. Schreiber, that discusses the joining together of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense with the Peace and Freedom Party. This union was to advocate for a fair trial for Huey P. Newton, one of the founders of the Black Panthers, who had recently been involved and charged in the October 1967 shooting of police officer John Frey. Describing the Black Panthers as 'the most militant Black organization in California,' the article provides quotes from the two groups regarding their efforts both for a fair trial and politically, although a spokesman for the Black Panthers somewhat dismisses both Democratic and Republican parties as those who have failed African-Americans. Of note is a photo of Huey P. Long handcuffed to a hospital bed, receiving treatment for gunshot wounds. Other articles provide commentary on various social and political issues, from pot to the Vietnam War, with an article on a gay U.S. marine receiving aid, and articles on literature, music and film. The Berkeley Barb, founded by Max Scherr, was an underground newspaper published in Berkeley, California, being one of the first underground/counterculture papers published in the U.S. It combined news and advertisements for sex and adult only entertainment which helped it to achieve financial stability. GOOD+ condition. Previous owner's address label at the upper right corner. General browning to the paper, mostly along the extremities. Several small holes along the last page fore edge, presumed to have been part of the printing process. Bookseller Inventory # 007350
