About This Item

N.p., n.d. [NY: CPUSA, 1948]. Broadside on newsprint, 17" x 23"; printed recto-only. Text in six columns beneath title headline and central graphic. Old folds; a few brief splits in margins; newsprint slightly toned -- still a well-preserved and attractive copy, Very Good. Broadside printing, possibly issued as an extra to the Daily Worker (though this is nowhere stated) of the CPUSA's 1948 Platform. The text calls for general reforms in the areas of international relations, the rights of workers, civil rights (including the right to profess communist beliefs), race relations and electoral laws. Within these categories demands are sometimes quite specific; e.g., "Abolish the un-American Committee [and] withdraw the indictments against the 12 Communist leaders;" and, "We demand that the Ingram family be freed and adequately compensated for the ordeals to which they have been subjected." The platform was also published as a 14-pp pamphlet, but this broadside printing appears rare, with no examples in commerce or in institutional catalogs (per OCLC, 12/2018).
