Self determination for the Negro people [handbill]
by [New England Party of Labor]
Boston: Hammer & Steel, 1962. 1p. flyer, 8.5x11 inches, printed single side, calling for political and economic power for the Black Belt, hailing Robert F. Williams who had recently gone into exile. Year penciled at bottom right, paper toned, otherwise very good. "The smallest New Left group is the New England Party of Labor which publishes Hammer and Steel, a mimeographed sheet that some people believe expresses 'pure Maoist views.' The man behind the organization is Homer Chase from New Hampshire. He wants to have a hammer and sickle carved on his father's headstone and has been fighting the town fathers for years on this issue. 'This headstone seems more important to Homer than anything else,' says critic Communist Gus Hall. 'But he gets written up by the press as a big factor in the Sino-Soviet split.' For once perhaps Gus Hall is right." -- from George Thayer: The Farther Shores of Politics, 2nd edition, newly revised (1968), p.433.
