Title: BLACK PANTHERS 1968 - DELUXE BOXED EDITION WITH A SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH
Description: Los Angeles, Greybull Press., 2002, First Edition 1/100 Deluxe. (ISBN: 0-9672366-9-X) Cloth in Dust Jacket, Boxed, 4to, 144pp, 111 b&w illustrations. Designed by Dmitri Levas. "In 1968, FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover vilified the Black Panthers as "the greatest threat to the internal security of the United States." That same year photographers Pirkle Jones and wife, Ruth-Marion Baruch, documented the Black Panthers for an exhibition at the De Young Museum in San Francisco. Their hope was to expose the public to the Panthers as they saw them - symbols of pride and strength - rather than the way they were being portrayed in the media. Jones and Baruch were given unprecedented access to the inner circle of the Black Panther Party. At intimate meetings, family gatherings and public demonstrations, we witness, through these incredibly moving photographs, a unique crusade for dignity and self-definition. "Black Panthers" is a historic documentation of this fascinating movement, so challenging and controversial to our culture that it was virtually erased from established texts and American history books". "We photographed the Black Panthers intensively from July into October of 1968, during the peak of a historic period and in the Bay Area, where the Black Panther National Headquarters is located. We couldn't possibly photograph all the aspects of this virile, rapid growing and deep rooted movement, but we can show you: This is what we saw, this is what we felt, these are the people - Pirkle Jones and Ruth-Marion Baruch". A brand new, pristine example of the uncommon deluxe edition limited to one hundred blindstamped copies of the book housed in a black leather clamshell box along with an original 11 x 14" black and white photographic print entitled "Black Panthers from Sacramento, Free Huey Rally" - which appears on page thirty-one of the book - NUMBERED AND SIGNED by Pirkle Jones in pencil on the verso.
