Description

Includes an article on reported connections between Winston Salem's Local 22, a worker's union of tobacco workers at R. J. Reynolds Tobacco plant, and the Communist Party. Includes commentary from anti-Communist union members, union board members, and others, "exposing" the presence of the Communist party in their organization "like a jellyfish in the noonday sun" so that "its influence may be expected to shrivel with a corresponding improvement in local labor relations." This article was published during the 1947 strike at the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company -- a strike which was predominantly African American, as was most of the plant's workforce, and most of the union's members.
