«The story of African American volunteers in the SCW on the WWW
The story of African American volunteers in the Spanish Civil War s now on the World Wide Web.
As part of its ongoing web based educational series "For Your Liberty and Ours," ALBA had just released a new multimedia educational tool on African Americans in the Spanish Civil War. Free and accessible to all, "African Americans in the Spanish Civil War" is available at: http://www.alba-valb.org/curriculum/index.php?module=2
Co-authored by William Katz, Fraser Ottanelli and Chris Brooks, "African Americans in the Spanish Civil War" traces the experience of this group of US volunteers from their involvement in the political and social struggles of the 1920s and early 1930s to their decision to pursue their struggle against exploitation and racism on the battlefields of Spain. A final section traces their continued activism through the 1990s.
Of particular interest to educators and students are the short biographies (most of them with accompanying photographs) of every African American volunteer, the list of suggested readings for additional research, and the special section "Ask the Experts linked to hundred of scholars of the Spanish Civil War. In addition, "African Americans in the Spanish Civil War" makes available for the first time a complete (and downloadable) copy of Walter Garland's FBI file.
