Item # 701676

February 19, 1970

THE VILLAGE VOICE, Greenwich Village, New York, Feb. 19, 1970

* Huey P. Newton & the Black Panthers Party
* "Free Huey!" campaign - protest demonstration
* re. the shooting death of a Chicago police officer

The front page has a heading: "Rage of the Panthers: The Ghetto on Trial" with 3 related photos. (see images) Coverage continues inside. Lengthy text. I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
Complete with 80, tabloid-size, one crease across the center, very nice condition.

Provenance note: This issue comes from The Village Voice's own archives, part of their in-house collection used to create their digital archive. Rare as such.

Alert: Many issues of The Village Voice contain articles and/or photos which some consider offensive, and are certainly inappropriate for children. Please purchase with discretion.
