Oakland: Soul Student Advisory Council, 1969. 8.5x11 inch four-panel brochure with a registration form laid in, very good.
Announcement of a conference sponsored by the Soul Student Advisory Council at Merritt College, calling for a "Black University for Black Liberation" and planning for discussion of the details such as curriculum, staffing, etc. The Soul Student Advisory Council was key to the formation of the Black Panther Party, as Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, Eldridge Cleaver, and other early Panthers came to know one another through their activism. The program states that the conference was to be dedicated to Huey Newton; the keynote address was to be delivered by Sister Makinya (formerly known as Harriet Smith, the former student body president at Merritt College).
