[POLITICS] A Call to a Convention to Establish the All-Harlem Peoples Party. New York: Committee for Convention for All-Harlem Peoples Party, 1936.

7 x 10 in. (177 x 254 mm) 4pp. handbill (folds, minor toning). 

A handbill advertising the conference where over 200 delegates representing 89 community organizations met with the goal of "establishing an All-Harlem People's and Labor Party...and of nominating candidates for the coming elections." The party was named the All Peoples' Party, a 12-point platform was created, and the party nominated an inter-racial slate for the city elections that autumn, notably including African-American labor organizer Angelo Herndon (1913-1997) for an assembly seat. Herndon was nationally known because of his 1932 arrest for insurrection in Atlanta after attempting to organize industrial workers. RARE: no other copies are known to have sold or located in OCLC.
