Description:
Los Angeles: Civil Rights Congress, 1949. Some areas of light offsetting; folded; one pencil mark, still clean and fresh.. Two legal-sized mimeograph pages, approx. 8-1/2 X 14 inches, stapled in one corner. Detailed recounting of events in this now nearly-forgotten civil rights case from New Jersey. The six defendants had been held for four days without counsel and signed coerced confessions that they repudiated in court. All six were convicted of murder, despite a complete lack of evidence beyond the confessions. Many dimensions of misconduct marked this case from the first arrests following the original crime in 1948 and going through numerous appeals. It was taken up as a cause by civil rights groups -- Thurgood Marshall was involved as a lawyer for the NAACP -- and leftist organizations, but probably because it was in a northern state, it slipped into obscurity as the civil rights movement progressed.

N.P. (Los Angeles): n.p., 1948. Folded three times horizontally, as for mailing, otherwise fine.. Mimeographed broadside, printed on one side of a single legal-sized leaf, approx. 8-1/2 X 14 inches. Informational broadside of unspecified origin, likely intended for readers of "Peoples' World" or a similar Soviet-sympathetic publication. The document centers on a Q & A sequence addressing the situation in Berlin, which had been blockaded by the occupying Soviet forces in a direct challenge to the developing post-war order. The broadside offers explanations of some of the issues that led to the blockade. It appears to predate the commencement of the Berlin Airlift, with which allied forces answered the blockade. An early relic of one of the first major controversies of the Cold War.
