Part I was donated in 1981 and includes reference files and the personal library of Ben Burns. Approximately 135 linear feet, Part I includes materials dating from 1950 to 1979.
After working for black publications for thirty-five years, Burns referred to himself as “a black newspaperman, black in my orientation and thinking, in my concerns and outlook, in my friends and associations, black in everything but my skin color.” Burns summarized the influence that his experiences at black publications had on him: “I am a white man who has been passing for Negro for thirty-five years.” Born Benjamin Bernstein on August 25, 1913 to Alexander, a housepainter, and Frieda Burns, Burns grew up on New York’s West Side.
Some, if not most, of that influence/allure surely stems from the charisma of Morrison and the power he held over his audience.
This plays into the tendency many post-punk bands had to work laboriously to construct conceptual foundations for their bands.
