This collection consists of approximately 115 alternative newspaper and journal titles whose primary focus is from an ethnic,
leftist, socialist, or communist perspective. A large number of the collection consists of issues of The Guardian, though
it also includes publications such as: Barb/Berkeley Tribe, The Black Panther, The Call, Chinese Literature, Ramparts, and
many other titles. This collection also consists of other publications, leaflets, flyers, clippings, and articles relating
to topics such as the anti-war movement, the Black movement, the labor movement, and other topics.
The collection consists of approximately 115 newspaper and journal titles, published between 1949 and 1994, though the majority
of the collection was published between 1969 and 1992. The newspapers all report from a leftist perspective and many of the
publications espouse a Communist ideology. Topics relating to many of the major movements of the late 20th Century are covered,
including the Anti-War Movement, the Black Movement, the Chicano Movement, and the Feminist Movement. As many of the publications
relate to Communist ideology, there is a great focus on labor issues and the plight of the working class in the United States.
These Communist publications largely report on issues in the United States, though they also report on world happenings, including
coverage of Cuba. Many of the journals offered extensive coverage relating to the death of Mao Zedung in 1976.
