Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library

The Comintern and the Formation of the CPUSA

In his recent book, The Communist International and US Communism, 1919-1929 (Haymarket Books, Chicago, 2015), author Jacob A Zumoff, “presents a nuanced, granular analysis of the relationship between the CPUSA and the Comintern, detailing the central role played by the International in the creation of the party (and) in ensuring that the party placed work among black workers at the heart of its programme. . . . In short, without the Communist International, there would have been no Communist Party in the US.” (review by Tony Collins in Marx and Philosophy). All this paved the way for the great CPUSA achievements on the struggle for black liberation in the 1930's. Our ICSS comrade, Elazar Freidman, will share his thoughts on the role of the CPUSA in the black liberation struggle and lead our discussion of the entire topic.
