The Split of the Weather Underground Organization: Struggling Against White and Male Supremacy.
Seattle, WA: John Brown Book Club, 1977. 4to. 44pp., including cover. Illustrated.
Contains statements from the various factions and documents the struggle and eventual split within the Weather Underground Organization, which came to a head in the Hard Times Conference of 1976 where the WUO was criticised by the women’s and Black caucuses, leading to the formation of the splinter group the Revolutionary Committee. Includes the text of a tape from Bernardine Dohrn in which she repudiates and denounces “the counter-revolutionary politics and direction of the Weather Underground Organization”.
Lower wrapper prints a poem by Assata Shakur, a member of the Black Liberation Army (a militant offshoot of the Black Panthers that helped her escape from prison in 1979 where she was serving a life sentence for the murder of a State Trooper; she is still wanted by the FBI; she was also the godmother of rapper Tupac Shakur, who was murdered in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996).
Errata sheet present. Closed tear to upper wrapper; pages slightly age-toned. Very Good.
