David Beasley Discusses A Life In Red says
A LIFE IN RED reveals the true story of star-crossed lovers Herbert Newton, a black communist seeking the end of an oppressive America, and Jane Newton, the white daughter of a wealthy American Legion commander, and their part in the Depression-Era, communist fight for a black sovereign nation.

Revealing a largely ignored piece of civil rights history that unfolded a quarter century before the mass protests in the 1950s, the Newton’s love story underscores the fraught times of a segregated and flailing country. David Beasley's account of the movement’s history creates a full and layered backdrop. From the attempt to unionize Southern workers to the trial of the Atlanta Six, A LIFE IN RED explores communist’s endeavors to utilize the black community's anger and oppression to fuel a deflated movement on American soil.

This program will be held at the MLK Historic Site, 450 Auburn Avenue NE, Atlanta GA 30312.
