Ann Braden played an important role in the Civil
Rights struggle. She remained in the CP even after
the massive exodus of 1956=57 (when I left). Can
anyone fill in on her activities? I especially hope
that Hunter Bear could comment on her activities.
According to the reports I heard, he worked closely
with her. A few years later, I was very closely
involved with the Southern Student Organizing
Committee (SSOC) and from them heard a great deal
about Ann. I lived in New York at the time and had a
spare bed room. The SSOC kids stayed with me when in
New York, so I had a running report. Among others I
got to know Ann Romaine and her husband Howard. Ann
Romaine was the folk singer from Gastonia, North
Carolina, who was writing a book with Malcolm X at the
time he was assassinated.
