    Zindzi Mandela's seminal 1978 poetry anthology was published at the end of the Black Consciousness Movement, a time of Black identity and resistance to apartheid. With painfully acute awareness of the inequality, her poetry reveals the life of a child under South Africa's apartheid and remains excruciatingly relevant today. The poems are accompanied by Peter Magubane's evocative photographs, which reflect the brutality of Black life under apartheid.

    South African poet and diplomat Zindziswa "Zindzi" Mandela was the youngest daughter of anti-apartheid activists, freedom fighters and politicians Nelson and Winnie Mandela. She is among the three youngest published poets in South African history. She died at age 59 from Covid-19.

    About Asahiyaki (from the Company's website, which leads with the tagline "Asahiyaki Uji, Kyoto, Since 1600"):

    ******ASAHIYAKI is located in the Uji region of Kyoto Prefecture which is known as the center of tea culture, just across the Uji River at the foot of Mount Asahi, opposite the Byodo-In Temple. ASAHIYAKI started the pottery works about 400 years ago during the Keicho era (Momoyama Edo period) under the guidance of Kobori Enshu. It is regarded as one of the "Enshu Seven Kilns (Enshu Nanagama)". In the times tea masters such as Sen-No-Rikyu and Kobori Enshu were active, the first kiln master Tosaku used Mt. Asahi pottery clay to create tea utensils such as tea bowls and freshwater containers that were favored by daimyo and tea masters.

    After that, ASAHIYAKI have continued to make tea utensils in Uji without interruption for generations, in the latter half of the Edo period, the eighth generation Chobei started to make the sencha wares that is the prototype of the current shape. ASAHIYAKI grew up with the development of tea culture in Uji. ASAHIYAKI will continue to cherish the tea culture of the past and continue to walk with them.******

    From the collection of Melinda Gebbie, Feminist San Francisco underground comix luminary and psychedelic visionary.

    The Church of the SubGenius is a satirical and subversive religious organization that emerged in the 1970s counterculture. Founded by Ivan Stang and Philo Drummond, the Church parodies traditional religion and mocks mainstream society through the use of humor and parody. The Church's teachings and practices center around the concept of "Slack," or the pursuit of personal fulfillment and freedom, often through unconventional means. The Chur's iconography, including its de facto deity "Bob" Dobbs, draws heavily from conspiracy theories, science fiction, and other elements of popular culture. Despite its unconventional nature, the Church has had a significant impact on countercultural movements and has left a lasting legacy in popular culture.
