KULCHUR MAGAZINE 1960
Kulchur was unique for its concentration on publishing reviews and criticism. The magazine emerged from the circle of writers, artists, and musicians whose unofficial headquarter was the Chelsea apartment of LeRoi Jones (Amin Baraka) and his wife Hettie, editors of Yugen. 
The founding editor was the young poet Marc D. Schleifer. He soon became caught up in the excitement of the Communist revolution in Cuba, which he left to witness first hand after assembling the third issue of Kulchur, the first under publisher Lita Hornick, who provided the magazine with financial stability. The next two issues appeared under guest editors Gilbert Sorrentino (1961) & Joel Oppenheimer (1962).
KULCHUR was named after Ezra Pound’s Guide to Kulchur (1938).
