This incredibly rare work, composed by Leigh Mosley and published by the radical, short lived D.C. Drum and Spear Press, is a calendar for the future chronicled by crucial events in black history’s past. The upcoming year is presented in this booklet broken down by one week a page, the dates studded with quotations, photographs, and critical events documenting the work and lives of major figures like W.E.B. Dubois and Malcom X. These highlights create a dense fabric that foregrounds the timepiece with a collective, inherited history, and as revolutionary text object, it demands rigorous awareness as a call to action in considering the outline of the future.
