A college historian credits her union activism with leading "her to become an advocate of black and Chicano rights at a time when few other people were speaking out on such issues."The article includes a quotation from a 1990 LA Times review of Healey's book which is described as "more nearly a melodrama — the struggle of a zealous, principled and compassionate woman to make sense of life and love in a world utterly devoted to radical politics."
No criticism of Ms. Healey is made. Of course, many of those who might have something critical to say about a functionary for the monstrous tyranny of Communism may be part of the 100 million people - even workers - who it murdered.Yeah, she was a Communist who "fought for working people." Right.
