Bettina Aptheker discusses with Elsa Knight Thompson her reasons for being a Communist Party member, her experiences as a young woman, traveling in Europe, and various related subjects. Knight mentions that it has been a year since Sproul Hall and the FSM activities, and asks Aptheker to discuss where she thinks the student movement is now, how she feels about her election as one of the three student reps to the campus rules committee, and other current concerns.
