One of the most important communists in U.S. history, Harry Haywood, was born 125 years ago today, on February 4, 1898.

Haywood was a member of the Communist Party (CPUSA), serving on the Central Committee from 1927 to 1938 and on the Politburo from 1931 until 1938. After the CPUSA’s turn towards revisionism Haywood helped to found the New Communist Movement.
