Ken Cloke

Communist youth conference

After the Conference of Socialist Youth in March 1964, it was decided to hold the next convention in Chicago, and there form a new national youth organization. The Coordinating Committee determined to switch the meeting place to San Francisco, however, and to hold it on June 19 through 21, 1964. The New organization was named the W.E.B. DuBois Clubs of America and would serve as the youth wing of the Communist Party USA.

Those who signed the “call” for this June 1964 convention, as set forth on page 15 of The Convener No. 4, included Ken Cloke, a former president of SLATE and member of the Student Senate at the Berkeley campus of the University of California.[1]


In March 1979, the New York radical magazine the Guardian issued an emergency appeal to funds in an effort to save the publication. Over fifty supporters endorsed the appeal including Ken Cloke[2]
