Independent Press in D.C. and Virginia An Underground History

By: Dale M. Brumfield (author), Katya Sabaroff Taylor (Foreword Author)eBook

Description

The nation’s capital and the state of Virginia were a hotbed of political and social turmoil that marked the 1960s and 1970s. The area saw anti–Vietnam War protests, civil rights marches and students clamoring for a cultural revolution. Underground publications in D.C. and Virginia sprang up to document the radical change and question the “straight media.” Off Our Backs led the charge for women’s equality. The Gay Blade fought for the rights of homosexuals. Even the FBI began infiltrating the underground press movement by planting informants and creating fake magazines to attract suspicious “radicals.” Join author and former underground editor Dale Brumfield as he traces the history of alternative press in the Commonwealth and the District.
