    VOTE New Politics Party 1968.
    8.5" x 11", trifold brochure
    Ann Arbor, Michigan; 1968

    A political leaflet promoting the election of Eldridge Cleaver for President, with Larry Hochman as his Vice President. The brochure highlights that, "New Politics Voters feel that: The People Must Gain Control of the institutions in their communities. For Example: SCHOOLS...HOUSING...JOBS...TAXES...LAW AND ORDER."

    Eldridge Cleaver (1935-1998) was a writer, political activist, and later Minister of Information of the Black Panther Party. In 1968, he was also a presidential candidate, running on the Peace and Freedom Party ticket. Following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Cleaver led a group of Black Panthers in an ambush on Oakland police officers. A shootout ensued, in which two officers and Cleaver were wounded and a 17-year-old Black Panther member was killed. Cleaver was subsequently charged with attempted murder and fled to Cuba.

    Condition: Flattened folds, with light toning at the folds. Else very good.
