Announcement of an Appearance by Amiri Baraka (two copies)

Flint, MI: The University of Michigan- Flint, 1988. First Printing. Single Sheets. Two copies of announcement both signed & dated by Amiri Baraka. Two copies of a rare item relating to the recently deceased LeRoi Jones, later known as Amiri Baraka, among the earliest African-American members of the Beat Generation. The University of Michigan at Flint mailed this announcement of an appearance there on November 3 of what we presume was 1988, the year he dated both copies below his signature. Both copies are identical except one is light purple in color, the other beige. With image of Jones/Baraka above text on one side; return address, postage-paid notice & map on the other. As noted, both copies are signed & dated "Amiri Baraka/88" just above text below image. Beige copy has mailing sticker to the late James Perrizo, noted Beat collector & scholar. We presume that Perrizo attended & obtained the signatures at this event. Collectible Jones/Baraka relics, in very fine condition. Purple copy has light wave-crease across right edge of image-text-signature side, mild creases & scratches at & near upper edge; beige copy has horizontal crease where folded for mailing, crease-wave across right edge of image-text-signature side, mild creases & scratches at & near upper edge esp. corners. Very Fine. [Item #1945]
