II.IV. 1963-2013: A Civil Rights Retrospective

Black Earth Institute is pleased to present

I.IV. Civil-Rights-Cover

This issue is dedicated to the life and works of Amiri Baraka.

From the assassination of Medgar Evers and the Birmingham Church bombing that killed four children in 1963 to the re-election of the first Black president, this issue contains challenging, provocative, compelling, and prophetic contributions in essays, poetry, lyrics, song, short fiction, photography, art, and video that reflect on a particular or general aspect of the ongoing struggle for civil rights. How far have we come as a country, and how have we regressed?
