Invisible Heroes: African Americans in the Spanish Civil War
Authors: Alfonso Domingo & Jordi Torrent
Two thousand eight hundred North Americans volunteered to defend the Republic of Spain during the Spanish Civil War, but few people know that many of the volunteers were African Americans. This documentary tells their story and their fight for democracy and for the civil rights that were denied to them in their own country. The documentary includes interviews with volunteers and archival footage and pictures from the era, exposing a little known episode of Twentieth-century history.
