        The Black Nation: Position of the Revolutionary Communist League (M-L-M) on The Afro-American National Question

      [Newark, New Jersey: no publisher. 1978]. Quarto. 57pp. Stapled photomechanically reproduced sheets with printed stapled wrappers. About very good with wear at the extremities, price sticker, and heavy staining to the front and rear wrapper affecting a few interior pages. Amiri Baraka's personal copy Signed on the first page. The Revolutionary Communist League began as the student led African Liberation Support Committee that changed its name to the Congress of African People in 1972 under the leadership of Baraka with a new focus on Black cultural nationalism. The group adopted Maoism in 1976 and changed its name yet again to the Revolutionary Communist League, generating this document penned by Baraka. By 1980 the group merged with the League of Revolutionary Struggle and it appears this copy is Baraka's attempt shortly thereafter to update their positions.The document contains numerous comments, deletions, and additions in Baraka's hand stating with the title that he has partially crossed out and written "LRS (MC)" above the former organization's name. Throughout he has made various emendations: circling obsolete group names and writing "its demise" next to them; putting question marks or "update" next to different sections; adding in long passages or whole paragraphs to expand particular ideas; and with corrections on nearly every page. While we could not definitively identify whether these corrections were ever put into print as a whole, we suspect parts were likely incorporated into Baraka's polemic "RWH on the Black Liberation Movement: Wrong Again!" published in 1980. Rare. OCLC locates three copies of this publication. .
