Stapled, beige wraps with light aging and wear. About near fine. This copy is signed by Hughes to fellow writer and supporter of left wing causes, Howard Fast. Fast joined the Communist Party in 1943 and served time in prison for refusing to testify against others before the HUAC. Hughes' own interest in Communism and the nature of this poem make for a strong association between the two writers. This poem was originally read by Paul Muni over the Blue Network on Monday March 15,1943 from 3:45 to 4:00 PM Eastern War Time. Background music was furnished by organ accompaniment and the Golden Gate Quartette. Beautiful Hughes autograph and exceptional association. ; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 14 pages; Signed by Author
