Hartford communists

Hosted on the occasion of the 103rd anniversary of the Communist Party USA, the People's World Amistad Awards gave special recognition to Brian Steinberg who, four decades ago, developed the model in Hartford of People's World neighborhood routes as the basis for Communist Party clubs, now practiced throughout Connecticut and beyond.

The Special Recognition was presented by Alicia Roman-Delgado, the chair of the first such Communist Party club formed in the 1980s in Hartford’s south end, and her daughter Chachie Roman. Steinberg was recognized for his “lifelong, unwavering commitment to equality and a better world.”[1]

The diverse and inspired overflow crowd stayed to the end of the remarkable celebration of People's World Amistad Award honorees Anna Montalvo, Gwen Mills and Art Perry on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Communist Party USA, Dec. 2009. The theme of the event was "Keep the Ball win jobs with union rights, health care, peace and equality!" Unity and struggle were the messages of the day.

Everyone was thrilled by Aishah Jenkins and Kendra Streater two high school students who performed "Stand by Me" with piano and bass accompaniment.

Joelle Fishman presented the afternoon's call to action for organizing the unorganized, building even bigger grass roots mobilization on the issues including health care, no troops to Afghanistan, public works job creation and the employee free choice act. She presented certificates of appreciation to Dorothy Johnson and Brian Steinberg for their tireless work over many years delivering the People's Weekly World to workers' homes and getting them involved in the struggle.

Applause greeted the announcement that the People's World now daily on-line will have a mini Connecticut print edition as of January, when the national print edition ends.
