Today -100: August 2, 1920: Of red armies, communist parties, and universal negroes

The Red Army is 75 miles from Warsaw. France really wants Britain to join it in issuing a threat of war to Russia if it doesn’t knock it off, but Lloyd George is not keen on the idea.

Britain holds a convention to form a Communist Party.

Marcus Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association also has a convention, in Harlem, although proceedings will move to Madison Square Garden. Delegates from all over the world will draw up a bill of rights for the negro peoples of the world and elect a “President of Africa, a leader for the negro people of America and a leader for the negro people of the world.”
