Beacon Paperback #351. "Here are the Black Panthers, shown in a moving collection of photographs by Ruth-Marion Baruch and her husband, Pirkle Jones: stoics in dashikis; a youth in a black leather jacket, tenderly spooning cereal into a child's mouth; faces that show dreams, purpose, rebellion. These pictures, originally gathered for an exhibit at San Francisco's De Young Museum, comprised what was perhaps the most controversial show in the museum's history -- and was certainly one of the most popular. Since the San Francisco exhibit, the photographs have been shown at The Studio Museum in Harlem, and at Dartmouth College. These varied, candid shots portray the Panthers in their political and personal lives. On the faces of these young men and women are reflected the violence and the hope of America. With an excellent historical interpretation of the Panthers by black journalist William Worthy, 'The Vanguard' is a document of our times." - from the rear cover.

Curators: Dieter Buchhart and Sam Keller. "The American painter and draftsman Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) ranks among the most compelling personalities of recent art history. A self-taught artist from the New York underground, he at first made a living by selling painted T-shirts andxeroxed collage postcards in downtown Manhattan. Having won some acclaim f or his graffiti, Basquiat began exhibiting paintings and drawings as early as 1980. Two years later, aged just 21, he became a participant in Documenta. His friendships with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Madonna are likewiselegendary. Inspired by music or by comic strips, Basquiat's powerful compo sitions combine the mundane with the magic of his own African roots. His works evince the same intensity, the same energy as did his own tragically short life. In the course of his eight-year-long career, Basquiat not only succeeded in creating a wide-ranging oeuvre of his own, but he also added some new figurative and expressive elements to the Conceptual and Minimal Art repertoire." -from the dustjacket.
