Abstract:

The following research was/is being done as part of the author's Master’s Thesis at Moscow State University (Russia).

This paper will touch on some of black Americans' struggle in America i.e. slavery and look at how that led to a still little-known aspect of American and African-American History, black involvement in early Communist/ Socialist organizations in America, examining why black Americans generally weren't part of this movement until the early 1920's. Dealing with the latter period, the paper explores the reasoning behind the Communist International’s interest in black Americans, drawing from the views of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin, who is largely responsible for initiating the Communist Party of America’s work among blacks. At the same time, this work also takes an American/African American perspective, considering the mix of elements that led more blacks in this period into Communist ranks (the Irish Easter Uprisings, the Bolshevik Revolution and successive European revolutions, the Harlem Renaissance, WWI). From there the paper examines the Negro Question in the events of Comintern Congresses, e.g. Lenin's and John Reed’s views at the Second Congress, why there was no discussion at the Third Congress, blacks’ first appearance at the Congresses and effects thereof, and later resolutions, including Soviet and American influences in the post-6th Congress Resolution which deemed African Americans a nation deserving its right to self-determination and this policy’s understanding/implementation in America in the 1930’s, which was one of the last major Comintern measures on the Negro Question before its terminus in 1943.
