Chapter Summary

As every front organization of the Comintern, the ITUCNW had a Janus face. 'A Committee of Negro workers in America' issued the call for the conference. It had gathered representatives of the Negro workers in Africa, America and the Caribbean who, as it seems, by their own agency had created a revolutionary platform that sought to unify Black workers throughout the African Atlantic. Both the statement and the pamphlet underlined the need for the Negro workers to organize themselves into revolutionary trade unions and called for the Negro workers to support and to defend the Soviet Union, the ITUCNW never declared that its Hamburg Secretariat was an integrated part of the RILU network. The ITUCNW was an integral part of the 'solar system' of the Comintern but was at the same time actively engaged in forming its own hierarchical network.
