An invitation from the Communist Party - w. Angela Davis & Gus Hall

Vintage Leftist Leaflet Project

Leaflet: An invitation from the Communist Party - Join us to build a better USA 1981

An outreach and recruitment leaflet from the CPUSA released shortly after Reagan became President. Interesting for a number of reasons reflecting the period it also has a brief set of examples of the contributions made by Communists to changing the US. Note also the Gus Hall-Angela Davis photo. They had run together as the CPUSA's Presidential-Vice Presidential ticket in 1980.
