Black 70

[Palo Alto, CA]: [Stanford University], [1970]. Joyce E. King, Editor. Illustrated softcover (approximately 8.75” x 12”). A black yearbook of sorts, described as “a unique document in which we have said more than just a few words about the events of a single year, rather BLACK 70 is an effort to capture one aspect of the Black Experience in America.” Contains numerous images and sections on The Black Community at Stanford (1967-1970), visits from Imamu Ameer Baraka and Dick Gregory, features on the Black Panther Party, Martin Luther King Jr., demands and ideology of the Black Student Union, the Black Drama Group, Black Athletes, the Afro-American Studies Program, and black faculty and staff.

In the Dedication to the volume, Robert G. Walker writes, “Today, Black students at Stanford University realize that we are not here through the philanthropic or altruistic notions of white America. We have ridden here on the shoulders of the brutalized Black masses…May we all go forth from this momentary pause in history and be about Black people’s business, that is, ‘to build a Nation’ which is compatible with the needs and desires of Black people.”
