Two thousand eight hundred North Americans volunteered to defend the Republic of Spain during the Spanish civil war. Among that number were eighty-five African Americans, who bravely chose to fight against fascism and for the civil rights that were denied to them in their own country. This documentary reveals an unknown page in 20th century history, and tells the story of the invisible heroes who fought for their freedom in a far-away war. Professor Paul Preston will take part in a Q&A following the screening on Saturday 10 October.
