Historic debate between James Baldwin v. William F. Buckley Jr. at Cambridge University on the question: "Is the American Dream at the expense of the American Negro?"
Giving away Farfalla Press, Lock, Stock and Barrel to a Poetic/Fiction Collective whose members are all people of color and preferably veterans. Mission here is to promote diversified writing in a predominantly Caucasian writing and publishing culture. Only criteria that I ask for is that the ongoing publishing ventures of this Collective works to generate and produce inclusiveness of all races and cultures outside the standard Caucasian America aesthetic.
Taking over the press, the Collective will receive all current and future monies from Small Press Distribution and the current backlog of Books and CD'S housed there. I would like to see at least a ten person Collective form to carry out this basic mission statement.
If you fit this criteria and have a desire to help promote "outsider" literature giving the minority a voice and place to be heard and are able to work to continue the process of promoting the writing and culture of media outside the Caucasian America aesthetic then leave a comment below with your intentions and I will contact you.
Sincerely, Gary Parrish
