The Cricket: Black Music in Evolution, 1968-69


During the 1960s Black Arts Movement, Amiri Baraka, AB Spellman and Larry Neal’s experimental music magazine, The Cricket, covered poetry, reviews and politics across four issues, canonizing and empowering Black artists while also embarking on their own radical approach to music journalism. This anthology collates all four editions, alongside contextualization by author David Grundy, for a compelling and rare dive into the publication. Price is in Pounds.
