In this chapter, Harry Haywood reflects on his trip to the Soviet Union in 1932 as one of the three delegates—Robert Minor and Henry Puro were the other two—of the Communist Party of the United States to the Twelfth Plenum of the Executive Committee of the Communist International. The meeting was to be held in Moscow in early September. Its purpose was to analyze the current international situation and check the work of the Comintern sections, the affiliated parties. In Moscow, Haywood had a joyous reunion with his second wife Ina. He visited the Lenin School, where he reported on the Afro-American work in the party. He also met members of the Black and white film group who had come to the Soviet Union at the invitation of the Mezhrabpom (Soviet film industry).
