'Untidy Revolution' In Selma, Alabama...
Item # 667866
March 18, 1965
THE VILLAGE VOICE, New York, March 18, 1965 Page 3 has, "Untidy Revolution' In Selma, Alabama", which tells of Bloody Sunday. Beneath the article is: "A HEARTFELT 'THANK YOU' from MARTIN LUTHER KING, Jr., the Negroes of Selma, Alabama, and the SCLC staff" - which includes an invitation to make donations to the SCLC. A somewhat related article begins on page 5 and continues on additional pages: "The Negro Cowboys" - which is quite interesting.
This is the complete 32 page issue, tabloid-size, never bound nor trimmed, folded at the center with a bit of mid-fold browning, very nice condition.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Much of it content focused on the Greenwich Village world in New York City with an emphasis on art and theater.
Note: Many issues of The Village Voice contain articles and/or photos which some consider offensive, and are certainly inappropriate for children. If purchasing, please do so with discretion.
Provenance note: This issue comes from The Village Voice's own archives, part of their in-house collection used to create their digital archive. Quite honestly, due to content and provenance, how does one determine the value such a rare issue?
