Serial titled Black America, RAM, Black Liberation Front of the U.S.A., Fall 1964 is cataloged in Libcat.

This collection is an important addition to the civil rights, Black Panther, and Revolutionary movements' materials Cushing has collected. Cushing has a few items of Robert Williams, including a final issue of his publication, The Crusader. These holdings provide research and scholarly component to our growing holdings on alternative civil rights leaders and alternative civil rights movements in the United States. The Levy collection compliments the Eldridge Cleaver materials recently acquired that document his life in exile in Algiers, Paris, and Cuba; the Amiri Baraka collection of over 120 books and documents, and the Angela Davis collection of German postcards sent to her during her incarceration in 1971.
