Billy X JenningsRADICAL UNDERGROUND NEWSPAPERS

Alternative newspapers from the underground counterculture of the 60’s and 70’s from the collection of Billy X Jennings

Black Panther Party historian and archivist Billy X Jennings will present an exhibition of radical underground newspapers from the 1960s and 1970s, which will be on display at Love Library. The historically significant newspapers represent a voice that was not in the mainstream media. The publications created an ethos around the struggle for equality, civic engagement and justice. Often authored, designed and published by university students, these publications offer insight into the underground press and its vast diversity of visual languages that were both accessible and powerful while inspiring people to action. Selections of these graphic design artifacts include, The Berkeley Barb, The East Village Other, Basta Ya, Berkeley Tribe, San Francisco Oracle, the Chicago Seed and many others.
