Summary
"No socialist organization has ever had a more profound effect on black life than the Communist Party did in Harlem during the Depression. Even though the Harlem Communist Party boasted less than two thousand members at its apogee, its influence, particularly in the civil rights struggle, was far-reaching." "This work, largely based on primary materials and interviews with leading black Communists from the 1930s, is the first to fully explore this encounter between whites and blacks. It provides a detailed look at a period of reform, as well as an intimate portrait of Harlem in the 1920s and 30s, at the high point of its influence and pride."--BOOK JACKET
