Item #333594

First edition. Nicely inscribed by Cleaver: "To Dr. Shapiro, a comrade in the struggle for Human Rights and Dignity. I always see you at the right places at the right times. Keep on pushing, baby! Eldridge 3-16-68" Philip Shapiro, a prominent Bay Area psychiatrist, human rights and anti-war activist, was active in the Black Panther Party in this period, particularly around prison issues involving the San Quentin Six and subsidization of hospitals in African American neighborhoods. His papers are located at Standford University.

A nice inscription and association in an uncommon first edition, and a landmark book in the Black Power Movement.
