Spirit Magazine, December 1974

This excerpt from the December 1974 issue of York College's Spirit Magazine features student-produced artwork, poetry, and journalism. A self-described "third world publication," the magazine typically focused on the needs and concerns of York's large black student population.

One article from this excerpt describes a talk given by noted civil rights activist Stokely Carmichael following a screening of "Black Power: Future of the U.S.A." at the Storefront Museum, an institution founded three years earlier with the mission of promoting African-American culture in Queens. Carmichael's talk largely focused on his Pan-African organization (A.A.P.R.P) though the article's authors mention other questions and points brought up at the lecture. Another article summarizes a speech given on campus by a minister from the Nation of Islam.
