kufiya on the cover of Charlie Ahearn's "Wild Style The Sampler"

Note added April 19:

From the same era, here's one of Afrika Bambaataa in kufiya.

And Madonna, using it as a scarf. Madonna, for the record, was part of the general scene. Both she and Bam played at the Roxy in New York City around the same era.

You also wonder whether this guy on the cover of Ahearn's book wasn't channeling the Attica prison uprising of September 1971.
