[African American Magazine] The Black Scholar 1970's Periodical Archive. Sausalito, CA: The Black World Foundation. Archive includes 8 issues, including pictorial wrappers featuring Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. The 8 issues are from June 1971, (Vol. 2, No. 10); Feb. 1972, (Vol. 3, No. 6); Sept. 1974, (Vol. 6, No. 1); Nov. 1974, (Vol. 6, No. 3); Dec. 1974, (Vol. 6, No. 4); Jan/Feb. 1975, (Vol. 6, No. 5), Nov. 1975, (Vol. 7, No. 3), Nov./Dec. 1978, (Vol. 10, No. 3 and 4). Launched in the US in 1969, The Black Scholar (TBS), is the first modern Black studies and research journal. Founded upon the premise that Black writers, activists, scholars, and artists should participate in a larger dialogue, TBS strove to chronicle, analyze, and debate the conditions of and the emancipatory efforts by Black people against a multitude of oppressions that include gender, sexuality, class, and ideology. Due in part to the impact of the journal, Black Studies, Africana Studies, Diaspora Studies and other sub-disciplines have become legitimate spaces of scholarly inquiry. However there are few public intellectual spaces that focus on black thought, are dedicated to the new multiplicity of black perspectives (or perspectives on race) that have emerged through these disciplines, and engage with the new issues and concerns facing black communities worldwide. The Black Scholar is one of those spaces. Black and white pictorial wrappers featuring prominent Black activists including Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. Each issue illuminates many aspects of Black life through poetry, artwork, advertisements, and scholarly journals. One issue features a lengthy article by notable American Marxist historian and political activist, Herbert Aptheker, entitled "The History of Anti-Racism in the United States". Another issue highlights an article on "The Black Administrator in the White University", illuminating the lack of Black administration in predominately White colleges and universities. Four magazines bear postage sticker remnants, and the Feb. 1972 issue is discolored and chipped on wrappers and bears penned writing on front cover, minorly impacting the titled text. Arguably "the most influential Black-oriented intellectual publication", overall in very good condition.
