29 december 1968 & black land news

#OTD-ish 29 December 1968 Black Land News was first issued in December 1969. It was published by the Young Pioneers of New Africa. The motto was “Unity Through Truth!” The cover article, by Joe Kelly, featured the public housing strike that was organized due to rent increases.

Your comments are welcome below. Do you, a family member or neighbor remember Black Land News? Do you have copies? Were you involved in the publication? Who were the Young Pioneers of New Africa? Who was Joe Kelly? Do you recognize the street in the neighborhood? You may comment privately here.
