A friend of the site writes, “One of the things that struck me most about Angela Davis’ autobiography was the Che-Lumumba Club she was a part of, a group for people of color in the Communist Party. I even wrote the Party in Illinois to see if they had anything like that still going on, and they didn’t even bother to reply.
“Around the same time when reading Howard Fast’s autobiography I was similarly impressed by the Jack Reed Clubs the Communist Party had in its hayday for writers and artists. Like Davis and Fast, Che, Lumumba and Reed were all inspirations to me, these clubs seem to have been the convergence point for many aspects of many people’s lives.
“Last night after reading a little more of the collection of Richard Wright’s work, it occurred to me that a network of Richard Wright Clubs would be an amazing way for anti-capitalist artists of color to encourage each other and share there work! Each Club could hold it’s own events, print its own journal and/or maintain it’s own website, and there can be a national or even international events, journals and websites to promote a culture of resistance to class society by and for people of color, autonomous of political parties.
