Summary:
Swindall closely examines the work of two organizations, the Southern Negro Youth Congress (1937-1949) and the Council on African Affairs (1937-1955), which employed a global, Pan-African perspective and were part of the mid-twentieth century efforts to address race and labor issues from a leftist view.
