    AMERICA, LOOK AND LIVE! by Helen W. Wood. An autobiography of her conversion from Communism to evangelical Christianity.

    Published by American Soul Clinic and Printed by Bedrock Press, Los Angeles, 1952.

    Softcovers, booklet, side stapled, 5.5x8 inches, 77 pages.

    GOOD condition, some light soiling and signs of handling to the covers, otherwise tight, bright, clean and clear. A nice copy.

    Helen W. Wood was a lifelong white activist working to defend the rights and save the souls of African Americans. In the 1930s she was a Communist Party organizer. She converted to Christianity while working in the defense of an African American youth in Iowa charged with murder. The Iowa Communist Party opposed her work, but her efforts were supported by the local evangelicals. This began her conversion from Communism to Evangelical Christianity, a process completed in a Los Angeles skid row mission where she continued to work to better the lives of African Americans in need of help.

    Though an Anti-Communist tract, it is also an interesting autobiography that envisions evangelical Christians as people who would not tolerate racism (especially from a President).

    Scarce, especially so SIGNED.

    This is a landmark civil rights trial in which the plaintiff claims to have been unconstitutionally subjected to cruel and unusual punishment by the conditions at Soledad prison in 1965.

    Robert Charles Jordan, Jr., Plaintiff v. C. J. Fitzharris et al, Defendants. Published by the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, September 6, 1966. Memorandum Opinion and Order by U.S. District Court Chief Judge George B. Harris. Legal document, stapled bound typewritten sheets, 8.5" x 11", 22 pages. VERY GOOD Condition: light age toning, a small paperclip stain, tiny edge tears to rear cover, otherwise tight, bright, clean and unmarked.

    In 1966 a Black prisoner named Robert Charles Jordan, Jr. filed a lawsuit against the Superintendent of Soledad prison charging "cruel and unusual" punishment. What was surprising about this case was that the court found in Jordan's favor. Mr. Jordan was locked in solitary confinement in a "strip cell" at Soledad Prison. The complaint goes on to detail many more inhumane conditions and treatment. After the court ruled that Jordan had in fact been subjected to cruel and unusual punishment, the Superintendent of Soledad, Cletus Fitzharris, remained at the head of the prison for 5 more years. He was then promoted to deputy director of the California Department of Corrections. Robert Charles Jordan Jr. was born in 1939 and was 27 years old when he filed this case. He had been convicted at age 19 of assault and has remained, as of 2020, incarcerated in a California prison. The Eighth Amendment prohibits the infliction of cruel and unusual punishment. The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s pushed (at national, and local levels and in legislatures and courts) to recognize that the government disproportionately policed, incarcerated, and oppressed people of color and the economically disadvantaged. Court litigation records like this detail the horrific treatment incarcerated people continue to endure in prison.

    The Symbionese Liberation Army was a radical cult advocating the violent overthrow of the U.S. government. In 1973 they murdered Oakland Superintendent of Schools Marcus Foster, in 1974 they kidnapped publishing heiress Patty Hearst who apparently got Stockholm syndrome and indelibly became the semi automatic brandishing Tania during an SLA fundraiser at a bank, and a few months later they got into a huge shootout with the Los Angeles Cops. The surviving members were the subject of the largest FBI manhunt since Dillinger.

A solid, respectable copy.

    Illustrated in a graphic style similar to the influential Marshall McLuhan book "The Medium Is the Massage." A book design classic "Right On!" is a powerful visual collage of black & white photographs, graphics and text that captures the radical student protests of 1969 from fights for civil rights, Black Power, student power, Black studies programs and racial diversity to anti Vietnam War rallies and altercations with police. "Black studies are inevitable. Period."

    This vintage counterculture monograph is based on a 1969 study of over 200 US college campuses conducted by the Urban Research Corporation of Chicago, a private commercial organization that monitored contemporary trends and prepared reports for a range of groups and institution. These protests occurred on campuses of all sizes and in every region of the country, but most occurred in large universities with more than 1,000 students.
