Black & White Love & Lust (SCARCE EARLY BLACK EXPLOITATION IN THE SEX MARKET)

"Why is it that the great portion of the members of our society cannot accept the fact that men and women need not be of the same race in order to love one another?"

Original early 1970's erotic literature magazine that features a B/W portrait of a well-built black male and white female (Gene Bilbrew style) on the cover, but the text has little to do with interracial relations at all. Text written in the third person as supposedly relayed to a doctor and/or psychiatrist. Includes three supposed interview summaries detailing sexual situations that don't seem to have anything to do with the cover or the random B/W photos in the text of a black and white woman making love. This was either produced by Dr. Michael Umbers (?) or Kilgore Trout. Obviously a sham publication looking to sell sex of any kind to a mature audience (as sale to minors is prohibited as stated on the front cover).

There is only ONE listing on OCLC (Howard University). Howard lists the author as Michael Umbers. Makes sense as research reveals Dr. Michael Umbers was the author of at least one other sleaze novel published by Star Distributers in 1972. The Village Voice records an interview with Umbers in 1971 in which he shares that he sells "flesh" lit published by Mark Litho and sees himself a Gay Liberator, publisher, real estate tycoon and falsely accused felon who was arrested on a trumped-up white slavery charge in Canada... Just going to leave all that there...

Original stapled wraps in excellent condiiton. Original price of $7.50 (WOW) on front cover.

Price: $150.00
