Ben Davis:  The Communist Councilman from Harlem

You can register here.

Using newspapers, election materials and historical documents, this class will explorethe unique set of circumstances leading to Ben Davis Jr. becoming a “communist councilman” from Harlem and the persecution he faced at the beginning of the Red Scare when he was sentenced to five years in prison after he was a defendant in the first of the Smith Act Trials. We will consider lessons from his life, the way he was portrayed in media and reassess his impact.
