Kendra Alexander 1945-1993

THE EDITORS OF Against the Current learned with great sorrow of the death of Kendra Alexander, a National Co-chair of the Committees of Correspondence. A veteran of the civil rights and antiwar movements, Alexander was a principal spokesperson of the defense committee for her sister Angela Davis in the 1970s. She was a leading member of the Communist Party from 1965 until her resignation in 1991.

Kendra Alexander will be greatly missed, not only by her comrades in the Committees of Correspondence but by all of those engaged in the difficult struggle for a socialist, democratic and antiracist recomposition of the left in the United States.
