Tiger Paper, February 1972

This issue of the Tiger Paper contains humorous takedowns of the college administration, a call for free subways, a critique of the state of nursing education, and an extended interview with radical poet Sonia Sanchez.

The Tiger Paper, which billed itself as "Manhattan Community College's only underground newspaper," was published between 1971 and 1974 by a group of radical faculty members at BMCC. The paper, whose name was a play on the quip of Mao Tse-tung that "U.S. imperialism is a paper tiger," addressed struggles both internal and external to the college while emphasizing the connections between them.
