      (CIVIL RIGHTS.) SALADIN, AL[BERT]. Volume 1, Number 2 of the International Black Wire. Afro-American Human Rights Petition Launched . . . You're Next--Soul Brother. 16 pages. Folio, original self-wrappers. Chicago, 1968

      Estimate $300 - 400

      the second number of this scarce radical newspaper, featuring photographs of victims of the Holocaust on the front page, saying "You're Next Soul Brother." Articles include "Reds Plot UN Probe of South," saying that the UN was investigating conditions in the South, a column "Harlem Happenings," and an editorial on police violence. Includes a loosely inserted mimeographed petition, Letter to George Ball, the U.S. Ambassador to the UN. It is difficult to say just who the International Black Wire people were. Not seen by Danky.
