Issue no. 3 with illustrations. Broadside sheets, each approx. 22" x 17". Some slight creasing and bumping to corners, overall very good. Loose as issued. New York, 1970. The Committee to Defend the Panther 21 was a mixed group formed of Communist Party USA members, CPUSA sympathizers, and assorted socialists and liberals who came together to raise funds for the defense effort of twenty-one Black Panthers who in 1970 were charged with "a conspiracy to murder New York City policemen and dynamite a variety of sites ranging from Abercrombie & Fitch to the Bronx Botanical Gardens." Incredibly scarce; as of December 2015, WorldCat locates only a single holding in North America. (Inventory #: 48390)
