1970-71 BLACK CREATION Magazine THREE ISSUES by INSTITUTE OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN AFFAIRS at NEW YORK UNIVERSITY NYU
THREE EARLY ISSUES of BLACK CREATION, Vol.1 No.1, April 1970; Vol.1 No.2, Summer 1970; and Vol.2 No.3, Summer 1971. The magazine was founded and edited by Fred Beauford. Published by The Institute of African American Affairs, New York University, 1970-1971.
From the inaugural issue: "This magazine was conceived and made possible thru the energies of Black students at New York University, under the auspices of the Institute of Afro-American Affairs, and contains works from the New York University Black community."
BLACK CREATION was published from 1970-1975, for a total of only six volumes. The early issues of this important African-American magazine have become very hard-to-find.
