        Eldridge Cleaver c. 1975 revealing diary entry noting: "The communist take from the Rich and The Poor, in the name of the poor ... "

      n.p., ca. 1975. 5" x 7". "Single page of notes written in a diary, c1975, 5"" x 7', boldly scripted in graphite entirely in the hand of Eldridge Cleaver, and signed as ""Robin Hood"". Near fine with a small newspaper clip, and accompanied by an near fine unused, but addressed envelope, with the printed return address of ""Cleaver for Congress ..."", and embellished with a US flag, 9.5"" x 4"". A scarce page of notes scripted entirely in the hand of Eldridge Cleaver. Composed circa 1975/76 around the time Cleaver was returning from 7 years of self imposed exile as a fugitive as a result of jumping bail in 1968 when he was facing charges of attempted murder. His seven exiled years first brought him to Cuba where he received red-carpet treatment. Cleaver was set up in a Havana penthouse with his own personal maid and cook, then when the hospitality soon ended (Having received information that the CIA had infiltrated the Black Panther Party,) Castro could no longer trust them. As a fugitive he lived in Algeria, Cuba and France, and made trips to North Vietnam, North Korea and the Soviet Union. Everywhere he was wined and dined by the Communists. However, while in these countries Cleaver began to see that they were not "workers' paradises" as he had been led to believe. He saw the bone-crushing poverty. He saw that people had no freedom of speech whatsoever. They were, for all practical purposes, SLAVES. Those who dared to demonstrate for more money and better living conditions were mowed down. Cleaver became disillusioned with Marxist-Leninist-Socialism. Realizing that everything he had believed in and fought for was false, he suffered a nervous breakdown while in Paris and was on the brink of suicide. In was then he had his vision bordering on hallucination, watching what were his former communistic heroes pass before his eyes. In his state of utter disillusionment he saw at the end of the procession, in dazzling, shimmering white light, the image of Jesus Christ appeared. Cleaver remembered the sermons of his Baptist minister grandfather, and trembling, frightened and sobbing, he repeated what he could remember of the Lord's Prayer and the Twenty Third Psalm. He fell to his knees and asked Jesus to forgive him and to become his Lord and Savior. The next morning, he saw a path of light all the way to America, going through a prison cell. He got in touch with the FBI and said he wanted to come home and he was ready to stand trial and accept whatever judgment the law decided he owed society in order to reinstate himself and to erase his criminal past.These phenomenal handwritten notes were composed at the very climax of his disillusionment Communism. During his epiphany of the communistic state Cleaver had said ""I visited these communist and revolutionary countries to study their development plans (and) to examine how the people felt about the government and how the government treated the people ... There were always two sides - the government's and the peoples. There was a rosy picture (from) the government and a picture of misery and dejection from the point of view of the people""His incredibly scripted notes which he signs as ""Robin Hood"" are shown in full below:""The Communists say they are out to take from the rich and give to the poor. They took from the rich and from the poor - in the name of the poor - and kept it all for themselves.Robin Hood""A fantastic, scarce, and highly revealing autographed page by Eldridge Cleaver during a highly charged period of our recent history.Eldridge Cleaver was a leader of the Black Panthers who, because of his many crimes, was often in prison where he wrote "Soul on Ice", a commentary on prison life and racism in America which became an international best-seller and was basically the "manifesto" of the Black Nationalist Movement in America and abroad. In "Soul on Ice" Cleaver described his metamorphosis from rapist and drug-dealer to Malcolm X apostle to Marxist revolutionary, who became, virtually overnight, one of the leading exponents of "black liberation" in America."

        Eldridge Cleaver, Black Panther leader autographed thoughts denouncing communism

      [California], c. 1975. 5.5" x 8.5". "One page of notes, recto and verso, written in a diary, c. 1975, 5.5"" x 8.5"", boldly scripted in ink entirely in the hand of Eldridge Cleaver. Near fine with 3 pulled-open punch holes to the left margin. Included is a small newspaper clip from the period with the title of ""Former Panther Leader Renounces Marxist Ideology"". Accompanied by a near fine unused envelope with the address label removed leaving residual adhesive, with the printed return address of ""Cleaver for Congress …"", and embellished with a United States flag, 9.5"" x 4"".An important page of hand scripted notes, written during the era of perhaps one of the most important early revelations for Eldridge Cleaver, a period after he jumped bail and fled to Cuba in 1968, a period after he had the opportunity to visit numerous other countries and watch the machinery of their political systems. Cleaver had first become enamored with communism in 1958 while in prison when he was convicted of rape and assault with intent to murder and served time in Folsom and San Quentin prisons. During this early period of his life, and while still in prison, he was given a copy of the Communist Manifesto. The Communist Manifesto (originally Manifesto of the Communist Party) , a 1848 political pamphlet by German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Commissioned by the Communist League, the Manifesto was later recognized as one of the world's most influential political manuscripts. It presents an analytical approach to the class Struggle (historical and then-present) and the problems of capitalism and the capitalist mode of production. Unfortunately it based in philosophical theory and in real life, never worked. As such it was a poor prediction of communism's potential future forms.However, Eldridge Cleaver studied the theory and in the purist form of the philosophy began to preach about the vices and problems with our governmental system, and the glorification of communism. However this was all about to come to an end when he was to encounter an abrupt realization that things are not what they seem. His page of handwritten notes written much later, and included a news paper clipping from the time period are shown in full below:""Irangate: Nicaragua's Bay of PigsAfter it had become clear to the whole world that Fidel Castro has established a communist dictatorship in Cuba, the defeat of the Cuban Exiles at the Bay of Pigs guaranteed communism military control of Cuba, which resulted in Political control. The agreement worked out between Krushchev and Kennedy during the Cuban missile crisis, guaranteed Cuba's continued existence as a communist dictatorship without any fear of serious opposition from the U.S.A. "" With the attached newspaper clipping of:""Former Panther Leader Renounces Marxist Ideology""""Following his release, Cleaver fled to Cuba on the pretext that the Cuban government would develop a military training camp in Cuba for American black militantsCleaver said that he soon became disillusioned with the Cuban government when those plans never materialized and his suspicion grew when he began talking to Cuban blacks who were dissatisfied with the government there,""The bottom line was, these people were very unhappy with Fidel Castro, with communism, with the dictatorship of the proletariat - they felt that the whole idea of the revolution was a good idea, but they didn't like the life that existed under the dictatorship. The reason they were miserable was because they did not have any input in the decision making process,"" Cleaver said.Upon Cleaver's release from prison, his view of the world was about to change... His seven exiled years first brought him to Cuba where he received red-carpet treatment. Cleaver was set up in a Havana penthouse with his own personal maid and cook, then when the hospitality soon ended (Having received information that the CIA had infiltrated the Black Panther Party,) Castro could no longer trust them. As a fugitive he lived in Algeria, Cuba and France, and made trips to North Vietnam, North Korea and the Soviet Union. Everywhere he was wined and dined by the Communists. However, while in these countries Cleaver began to see that they were not “workers’ paradises” as he had been led to believe. He saw the bone-crushing poverty. He saw that people had no freedom of speech whatsoever. They were, for all practical purposes, SLAVES. Those who dared to demonstrate for more money and better living conditions were mowed down. Cleaver became disillusioned with Marxist-Leninist-Socialism. Realizing that everything he had believed in and fought for was false, he suffered a nervous breakdown while in Paris and was on the brink of suicide.Another set of notes discovered within his diary additionally expressed his despair with the communistic system ""The Communists say they are out to take from the rich and give to the poor. They took from the rich and from the poor - in the name of the poor - and kept it all for themselves.""In this moment, during his breakdown, he had his vision bordering on hallucination, watching what were his former communistic heroes pass before his eyes. In his state of utter disillusionment he saw at the end of the procession, in dazzling, shimmering white light, the image of Jesus Christ appeared. Cleaver remembered the sermons of his Baptist minister grandfather, and trembling, frightened and sobbing, he repeated what he could remember of the Lord’s Prayer and the Twenty Third Psalm. He fell to his knees and asked Jesus to forgive him and to become his Lord and Savior. The next morning, he saw a path of light all the way to America, going through a prison cell. He got in touch with the FBI and said he wanted to come home and he was ready to stand trial and accept whatever judgment the law decided he owed society in order to reinstate himself and to erase his criminal past.This personal example is a fantastic, scarce, and revealing piece by Eldridge Cleaver during a highly charged period of our recent history. Eldridge Cleaver was a leader of the Black Panthers who, because of his many crimes, was often in prison where he wrote “Soul on Ice”, a commentary on prison life and racism in America which became an international best-seller and was basically the “manifesto” of the Black Nationalist Movement in America and abroad. In “Soul on Ice” Cleaver described his metamorphosis from rapist and drug-dealer to Malcolm X apostle to Marxist revolutionary, who became, virtually overnight, one of the leading exponents of “black liberation” in America."
