Groundbreaking Pamphlet on African American Volunteers Now Online

March 13, 2021

Veteran Joe Brandt’s pamphlet Black Americans in the Spanish People’s War Against Fascism. 1936-1939 was published by the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigades in 1979. It was the first attempt to document the history of African American volunteers in the Spanish Civil War.  The Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of African American History and Culture recently transcribed the pamphlet and made it available online.
