Red Chicago

‘Red Chicago’ author Randi Storch was interviewed June 12 on Chicago Public Radio’s (WBEZ), Eight-Forty-Eight program. According to the website:

‘Labor activism has deep roots in Chicago. A new book chronicles a particularly lively period the years of the Great Depression when the American Communist Party was gathering strength. Its called Red Chicago: American Communism at its Grassroots, 1928-1935. Author Randi Storch is an associate professor of history at the State University of New York, Cortland. She says Chicago was a natural choice when she was deciding where to focus her research.’

Randi dispels myths, discusses CPUSA members such as Claude Lightfoot and the fight against racism.
