First Ten Years of American Communism Discussion Group
Every Monday, Aug 13 – Oct 15, 7:00pm
Campaign Headquarters
5018 Rainier Ave. S., Seattle

This collection of letters and articles by James P. Cannon, one of the founders of U.S. communism, focuses on the years 1918-1928. Cannon gives a personal overview of the Wobblies (Industrial Workers of the World) out of which he emerged, and goes on to describe the founding of the Communist Party, which was inspired by the 1917 Russian Revolution. 

In 1928 Cannon established the U.S. wing of the Trotskyist opposition movement, which split from Stalin’s bureaucratic and increasingly nationalist direction. 

This book addresses the questions: who popularized Marx, Trotsky, and Lenin’s ideas among working-class Americans and why didn’t a similar revolution happen here? How did these ideas influence Black liberation and other civil rights movements in their infancy? 

These questions and more are the subject of this weekly study group. Everyone welcome.
