        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."

        Archive of material relating to this Jazz Musician, Writer & Teacher

      , 1975. 1975. A five inch stack of material. Various dates but almost all from the 1970s. Includes: (1) Typescript (with corrections) of Tape One of March 1975 Smithsonian Interview (41 pages); (2) Class Rules for a class on Jazz music taught by Johnson (1p. - several copies); (3) Unfiled but signed Applications for Registration of a Claim to Copyright on songs titled "Blues for Sale" and "You Dirty Old Man" and one or two more; (4) "Ya-Ya" arranged and composed by Johnson (16 pages scored for 17 parts (both together and on separate sheets); (5) Certificates of Registration of a Claim to copyright for "The Blues are here to Stay" and at least 27 other compositions by Johnson ("Constant Music Inc. of which Johnson was President was the copyright holder for most); (6) Pencil draft of a song titled "If you just wouldn't say Goodbye" (1 page); (7) Typed Letter, signed from Felix P. Debrit (1 page, 1962); (8) numerous other compositions or arrangements by Johnson -- some copies, some appear original, and some of which, such as "Earl's Pearls," "Rosetta," and "Deep Forest," are scored for various instruments; (9) 15 photos, mostly smaller photos of Johnson and other musicians (not identified by us); (10) a thin file with some retained copies of letters; and (16) a few miscellaneous pieces of sheet music etc. Albert J. ("Budd") Johnson was born in Dallas, Texas and became involved in various musical groups while growing up. He is best known as a tenor saxophonist and played with Earl Hines, Louis Armstrong, Cab Callaway, Fletcher Henderson, Dizzy Gillespie, and others, although those associations appear to predate the material we offer. In 1969 he and three others formed the JPJ Quartet. It is clear from this material that he was also a composer. Item 2 makes us suspect that he must have also have done some teaching.

        Picked-Up Pieces

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1975. First. First edition, trade issue. Fine in fine dustwrapper with a couple of tiny rubbed spots. Inscribed by the author: "for Herb Yellin, Best wishes and Merry Christmas, John Updike 12/17/75." Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association. .
