More Info

Many know the endeavors of the Lincoln Brigade. In 1936 two thousand eight hundred North Americans volunteered with the International Brigades to defend the Republic of Spain, joining their struggle to about 50,000 other volunteers coming from 54 countries across the world. But what most do not know is that among the American volunteers there were eighty-five African Americans who also answered that call, fighting in Spain against racism and for the civil rights that were denied to them in their own country. This is their story, an unknown page of the USA and Spain's history.

"Invisible Heroes: African-Americans in the Spanish Civil War" presents the deeds of these invisible heroes who fought for their freedom in a far away war. Following the screening of the film, co-director Alfonso Domingo will lead a discussion of themes presented in the documentary.
