Gabe Falsetta and the Communist Party;
- I'm not sure where to start, so much to think about. Well, let me start from my first experience meeting a communist. As a young man of twenty-one working in the graphic arts industry, I met a member of the International Typographical Union he was a proofreader. Getting to know him, his thoughts, opened my eyes to racism and class; at twenty-one I was a late bloomer to politics.
- I'll never forget reading a 150-page book called "Point of Rebellion" given to me by my co-worker written by Chief Justice William O'Douglas. My long talks with this friend were my education to the class struggle and to institutionalized racism; he was a communist. Point of Rebellion was the foundation that explained the Watts race "riots" in the sixties and the conditions that led up the them.
- The wonderful human beings I've met at the Unity Book store, the classes I took with Herbert Aptheker that deepened my understanding of class and race. Those that nurtured my growth, all were members of the Communist Party. There was a phrase that Dr. Aptheker used I'll never forget - If you don't know the past, you won't understand the present and you may never grasp the possibilities of the future.
He is the partner of Tina Nannarone.
