Book cover picture of (Houston, James D, ; Lawson Fusao Inada,   Al Young,  June Jordon, Nate Mackey, Charlotte Painter and others, contributors) Reed, Ishmael, editor. YARDBIRD READER, VOLUME II (2, Two). Berkeley, CA: Yardbird Publishing Cooperative,  (1973.)
First printing. Second volume of this rather brief-lived, but extremely interesting, and 'cutting edge' journal, founded, according Reed's introduction, to 'publish the finest work by Afro-American artists without regard to ideological or aesthetic affiliation' and inspired by the creativity of jazz saxaphonist Charlie Parler, "Yardbird." By this issue, the contributors are no longer all African American but represent America in all its diversity - Afro-American, Chinese American, Japanese American, Filipino American, Anglo American, Franco American, Chicano, and more - and also African and Columbian. Includes contributions by Al Young, Lawson Fusao Inada , James D. Houston, Joyce Thomas, Wilson Riles, Jr, Michael S. Harper, Jack Micheline, Melvin Dixon, Jay Wright and others. 184 pages. Just about fine in stiff illustrated wrappers. .
