The Angelo Herndon Case and Southern Justice.


Surprisingly scarce study of Angelo Herndon (1913–1997), Black labor organizer and Communist Party activist. Herndon was convicted and imprisoned in Georgia in 1933 for attempting to incite insurrection in the wake of his organizing a successful—and unusual for the time—interracial demonstration for relief to the unemployed during the Great Depression.
