Additional Details

first edition. The King James version of the Bible, edited and illustrated for a strictly black audience. Firmly separatist, the text of this Bible is filled with the language of the black radical movements of the '60s and '70s. The illustrations are unusually harsh, showing a drawing of the Pope wearing a cap with "KKK" on it. No date is given by the publisher, but according to OCLC--only one copy located--this Bible was published between 1980 and 1983.
