BLACK IS.

Edition: Paperback original - first printing.

New York: Grove Press, (1968). First edition - A book of aphorisms which take on the stereotypes of what being Black in the US is like. Published at the height of the civil rights movement, perhaps the saddest thing about this book is how much is still true now, fifty years later. " Black is being accused of causing trouble but always winding up as the casualties . .. Black is when folks say you've got to earn the rights the Constitution guaranteed you already had" and more. Each is printed in white lettering on black paper with an illustration by Ann Weisman on the facing page. Unpaginated.

Condition: Very good (some rubbing to the edges of the covers) Uncommon in the first printing.
