North Korea and the American Radical Left

A collection of documents on North Korea's ties to groups associated with the American radical left, including the Black Panther Party, in the 1960s and 1970s. The documents were obtained from the personal papers of Eldridge Cleaver, a leading member of the Black Panther Party who visited North Korea twice, held by the Cushing Memorial Library and Archives, Texas A&M University, and the Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley. For additional context, see the 2013 essay by Benjamin Young "'Our Common Struggle against Our Common Enemy': North Korea and the American Radical Left."
