OZ and the obscenity trial
THE “obscene” cover is here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schoolkids_Oz#/media/File:Oz_Mag_Number_28.png
“The archive has been made available “for historical and research importance”. And, presumably, for anyone who wants to have a nosy at the infamous Schoolkids issue, which was edited by 20 teenagers and features a Rupert Bear montage that resulted in Oz’s editors – Neville, Jim Anderson and Felic Dennis – being charged with “conspiracy to corrupt public morals”. The six-week trial became the biggest culture war of the time. (…) All of which is contained in the colourful pages of the magazine (colourful apart from when they were broke and had to publish in black and white). “To see it online from beginning to end is to see everything the 60s produced – gay liberation, feminism, sex, the pill, acid, rock music, Vietnam,” Anderson says. “Everything the establishment hated was in Oz.” (Quoted from, all rights reserved: https://www.theguardian.com/media/shortcuts/2016/mar/06/return-oz-most-controversial-magazine-60s-goes-online
RADIO 68 PLAYS JOHN LENNON (Do the Oz) and BILL ELLIOTT AND THE PLASTIC OZ BAND (single). Lennon supported OZ openly.
“Dorothea Smartt is a stunning performance artist and poet. She has taught in the United Kingdom, and Bahrain, South Africa, Barbados and the U.S, after beginning her writing life in the Black/feminist co-operatives of the Eighties, and publishing her first work in anthologies. She plunges into a complex and diverse world which embraces Banjul, Barbados and her London base, Brixton. Little wonder, then, that she has been dubbed the “Brit born Bajan International” by her iconic mentor, Kamau Braithwaite, who clearly recognised her strong inner voice, so evident to listener and reader, and validated her blossoming poetic identity (…).
