March 12, 1972

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, March 12, 1972  The cover has a: "Black-party note spurs demands at convention", which includes two large photos, one of Rev. Jesse Jackson, and the other of the keynote speaker, Richard Hatcher, the mayor of Gary, Indiana. The article continues on page 20 which is full comprised of coverage of this historic conference. Nice to have from the largest major city newspaper in the region - approximately 30 miles away.
Complete with 152 pages, thick tabloid size Sunday edition, some toning at the margins and along the edges, a few archival mends in the margins, generally nice.
Background Note (Wikipedia): Filmmaker William Greaves' 1972 documentary Nationtime, narrated by Sidney Poitier, covers the National Black Political Convention. An 80-minute restored version was released in 2020 with funding from Jane Fonda and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
