An early newsletter issued by Crosswaith (1892-1965), an African American political activist and socialist (sometimes referred to as the "Negro Debs"), beginning: "The question of Negro labor and its place in the official labor movement of the United States is one that will not down; like a periodical disease, it breaks out ever so often in placed on least expects to find it..." A Caribbean immigrant, he served as a general organizer for the International Ladies Garment Workers Union, was influential within the United Colored Socialists of America and founder of the Negro Labor Committee. His newletter, Negro Labor News Service, was issued irregularly and is quite scarce.
