The paper was presented at the workshop "The US South in the Black Atlantic: Transnational Histories of the Jim Crow South Since 1865", organised by the German Historical Institute, Washington DC, 4-6 June 2015. The paper address questions of Pan-Africanism and international communism between the wars, and the conflicted but convoluted relationship between these two political interpretations of the world. The aim is to highlight how Pan-Africanism and international communism shared and benefited from each other, but also, how they confronted each other in the course of promoting racial liberation. Elements of Jim Crowism, as a political agenda, are addressed, however, the paper will be reworked and emphasize how the Comintern and sympathizing organizations such as the League Against Imperialism and the International Trade Union Committee of Negro Workers' (ITUCNW) included Jim Crow as a political message of resistance.
