Life after Mine-Mill

(p.159) Chapter 9 The Web of Consequences

James J. Lorence

University of Illinois Press

This chapter examines how Jencks' experiences after being cut loose from Mine-Mill only confirmed the worldview that had shaped his career as a social activist since his college years. Now, although he no longer had ties with the institutional party, he never gave up his commitment to the goal of creating a Socialist society in the United States. Even after he and Virginia were shaken by the brutality of the Soviets in Eastern Europe, Jencks looked to the future. However, his optimism suffered another blow in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he continued to face job discrimination rooted in his personal history of labor militancy and resistance to governmental pressures.

Keywords:   Clinton Jencks, Mine-Mill, social activist, insitutional party, Socialist society, Soviets, job discrimination
