By the mid 1960s Communist Party USA member David Canter was working as an insurance agent and publishing the small, politically-oriented Hyde Park-Kenwood Voices.

In April 1968, several people signed an Advertisement in the Hyde Park-Kenwood Voices as committee members of an as yet un-named organization led by Ruth Adams, Timuel Black, Rev. E.

In January 1969, the Hyde Park-Kenwood Voices, listed those who had helped produce its first 16 monthly issues as "writers, researchers, photographers, artists and clerical workers".
