A call for a Freedom Now Party, an all-Black party for 1964

New York: National Committee for a Freedom Now Party, 1963. Single 8.5x11 inch sheet folded to make four-page brochure, with red rubberstamp of Sam Jordan's campaign for mayor of San Francisco on the cover.

First page copies text of a "Talk of the Town" column from the New Yorker, mentioning the party; the inner pages have a "Talk of the Country" overview of its positions.
