Subject: Re: M-I: histories of US communism

Try "Black Bolshevik: Autobiography of an Afro-American Communist" by Harry
Haywood. It tells the story from the perspective of the Black left, and it's
a fairly complete and fascinating account, especially of the Comintern
training schools and the shift to the right in the 1950s. If you can't find
it locally, you can order it from Lakeview Press in Chicago.  Carl Davidson.
