Abstract: 
"This pamphlet illustrates how police violence in fact engendered resistance from Blacks in cities like Harlem. Harlem became the epicenter of black New York and perhaps even black America at the turn of the 20th century. In Harlem, tensions with the police were a permanent part of life. In 1943, a riot was triggered by a police officer's mistreatment of a young woman. In 1957, Malcolm X came to a national prominence following an incident of police brutality. In 1964, Harlem once again went up in flames after another incident of police mistreatment of local residents. This pamphlet will focus on these three episodes to provide some perspective about the history of police violence in New York City and particularly in Harlem in the mid-20th century. The topics are covered in an introductory manner and additional information is provided at the end for those who want to focus more in-depth." (Abstract taken from page 1).

Abstract: 
According to a 2003 survey by the Young Women's Action Team (YWAT)a positive call to action was issued in December 2005, "We reached out to men and women [young and old] across Chicago to participate in a Citywide Day of Action against Street Harassment on May 4th 2006. The YWAT wanted everyone to hear the message that "The Streets Belong to All of Us." We hoped that at least 100 different "actions", individual and collective, would take place across Chicago on May 4th. We surpassed our goal with over 140 actions." And this magazine documents those actions that took place May 4, 2006.

A portion of the abstract is taken from page 2. Although the publication date is not certain the Day of Action itself took place May 4, 2006 leading me to believe the publication date was also in the year 2006.
