African American leaders of the CPUSA
From its beginnings in the early years of the 20th century, the Communist Party USA was the only left political movement emphasizing racial justice for African Americans, and many in the Black community reciprocated in their support for the Party.  Recognition of the relevance of Marxism for Black liberation, and of the absolute necessity of Black-white unity, continues through the present as the Party prepares to celebrate its 100th year. The leadership role of African Americans in the CPUSA is a major feature throughout its history.  This presentation covers a few highlights of the rich history of Black leadership in the Communist Party USA.
