Gabe Falsetta and the Communist Party;[2]

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.
