Description

The Ann Arbor Sun was a newspaper founded by John Sinclair in November 1968 as a vehicle for the White Panther Party. In the 1970s, the newspaper transitioned into an independent publication covering local issues, left-wing politics, music, and arts. In 1975, the newspaper evolved into The Sun, which focused more on Detroit than Ann Arbor. Finally in 1976, publication was suspended indefinitely.

This issue includes articles on the state of the city; red-lining; overdoses; busing in Detroit; rent strikes in Ann Arbor; Police Athletic League; Angola; heroin industry and police; interview with Howard Kohn; Francis Ford Coppola interview; music and performance reviews; community calendar.
