Jane Speed 1910-1958
This is Jane. Jane lives in Alabama with her wealthy white family. In the 1920s, Jane’s mother, Mary Martin Craik Speed, (Dolly,) takes her to Vienna to study. Jane sees fascists attacking workers’ housing coops and joins Austrian communists' anti-fascist organizing. Jane thinks about southern sharecroppers. She reads George Bernard Shaw’s The Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism. See Jane get radicalized. Think, Jane, think!
