Join us for a celebration of the life of Clyde Young.
1949-2014

"It is with great grief and aching hearts, and with profound love for a  wonderful comrade, that the Central Committee of the RCP, USA announces the death of Clyde Young. Clyde Young, also known as Wayne Webb, was a communist for nearly 40 years...a leader of the people...  and a member of the Party's Central Committee.  His was a life lived for the people..... and full emancipation."  

Read statements from the Central Committee of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, and others, and learn much more about him here.

"My heart is broken at the loss of Wayne Webb. His life was an inspiring example of how those this system treats as "the worst of the worst" can become the very best that humanity is capable of. He was not just a precious comrade, but also a great friend - someone I have known since the 1970s and loved hanging out with: grappling together with questions of philosophy, politics, and art, joking and laughing, singing doo wop songs we both loved. I miss him terribly."
                                                                             - Bob Avakian
