Clyde Young (Wayne Webb), 1949-2014

A Life Lived for the People... and Full Emancipation

January 5, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |



This painting of Clyde Young was sent to Revolution newspaper from Colombia in South America. The artist, upon learning of the loss of comrade Clyde Young, was moved to work tirelessly to create this artwork and contributed it to commemorations of Clyde's life.



In 2014, we lost a wonderful comrade and friend, Clyde Young—also known as Wayne Webb. He was a communist for nearly 40 years...a leader of the people... and a member of the RCP's Central Committee. Clyde Young came up in the mean streets of Midwestern ghettos and first went to prison at age 12—one of the many this system slated for death at an early age, one of the millions and tens of millions whom this system has cast off and cast down. Yet he fought to rise above all that, and came to dedicate his life to the emancipation of all humanity.
