Detroit: The Fifth Estate, 1968. Newspaper. 20p., folded tabloid, illus., toned, tiny chips at spine quarterfold, mild fraying, else very good. Date on cover says 1967, but should be 1968.
One of the first underground newspapers, Detroit's The Fifth Estate is still being published, against all odds. Cover headline: "Macomb County Prosecutor hits Fifth Estate as Obscene." Inside: article on conflicts between Detroit black community groups, news on Leroi Jones' conviction in New Jersey on a gun charge in the middle of Newark Riots, John Sinclair column summing up 1967 top Rock and Jazz and pushing his favorite local bands, interview with J-P Sartre reprinted from Granma (Cuban newspaper) and report on the recent SDS National Council meeting in Bloomington, Indiana. Usual ads and ambiance of the era.
