The baton of the White Panthers is now in the hands of Headpress. John Sinclair, cofounding member of the White Panthers political party in 1968, is the editor of HEADPRESS 28. Mr Sinclair, a Detroit poet and one-time manager of the band MC5, became the focus of the counterculture and international media when John Lennon named a song after him and joined Stevie Wonder for a benefit concert to free him from jail.
HEADPRESS 28 marks the fortieth anniversary of the original White Panthers movement and heralds the launch of the 'HEADPRESS PANTHERS' and 'THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO UNPOPULAR CULTURE,' which fully endorses and supports the White Panther Party's ten-point program.
