Cover scanned from the final issue of GIDRA  magazine (April 1974).

Gidra was a monthly publication that called itself the “voice of the Asian American movement.”  Founded by University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) students in April 1969, the magazine took a radically progressive political position, providing information about the movement not found elsewhere in the mainstream media. The magazine eventually moved off campus, operating out of a series of offices in the Crenshaw area until its last issue went to press in April 1974.

Included in the Drawing the Line: Japanese American Art, Design & Activism exhibition on view at the Japanese American National Museum from October 15, 2011 through February 19, 2012.

Gift of Janice Diane Tanaka, Japanese American National Museum (90.8.1)
