Huey Newton Talks to the Movement about the Black Panther Party, Cultural Nationalism SNCC, Liberals and White Revolutionaries.

Boston: New England Free Press, 1968. 8vo, 8.25” x 5.5”, original illustrated pink wrappers, staple binding. 16 pp. CONDITION: Very good, occasional light wear and minor soiling.

Scarce New England Free Press edition of this extended interview with Huey Newton, which he gave from jail while standing for “one of the most politically charged trials of its era.”

The interview published here was conducted in August of 1968 by the underground periodical The Movement, a month into Newton’s trial for the shooting of a white police officer in October, 1967. He was convicted in September, but the verdict was successfully appealed the spring of 1970.

The New England Free Press operated from 1967 to 1981 in Boston. It began by “printing flyers for the United Farm Workers grape boycott. In 1968 [it] began distributing pamphlets published by the Radical Education Project and then started its own publishing program.” The Press is best known for publishing the first editions of Our Bodies Ourselves, the landmark grassroots guide to women’s health, sexuality, and reproductive rights.

OCLC records just two holdings of this edition, at the International Institute of Social History in the Netherlands and the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin in Germany.
