We’re delighted to announce the digitization of more than 50 issues of the Tricontinental from our collection.
The Tricontinental was a Cuban periodical first published in 1967 by the now inactive Organization of Solidarity of the Peoples of Africa, Asia, and Latin America (OSPAAAL). You can read more about OSPAAAL here.
The periodical covers a wide range of topics, from national liberation movements and capitalism’s exploitation of natural resources, to revolutionary art and poetry from across the Third World. Combining sharp, detailed yet accessible political analysis with stunning artwork and design, the goal of Tricontinental was to challenge imperialism, uplift anti-colonial struggles and create international solidarity between left political movements in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. This collection is an amazing resource to increase our understanding of the fabric of revolutionary movements across the world in the 1960s and 1970s.
