Every issue of the Southern Worker, a newspaper clandestinely published by the Communist Party in Birmingham and Chattanooga from 1930-37, is now online at:

The accompanying materials include an index, in both Word and Excel, an Introduction, providing background about the CP’s Southern campaign, and a Reader which reproduces a few SW stories and letters from readers. The indexes include every proper noun which appeared in the SW. Even small towns were mentioned in its coverage.

The SW did groundbreaking and courageous work on racial issues. The whole package that’s now on the web is supportive of the theory of the Long Civil Rights Movement.

Producing the work that the Marxist Internet Archive has now put online took me about three years. I hope that several of you will conclude that the effort was worthwhile.
