Join us for a showing of:
‘Invisible Heroes:
in the Spanish Civil War’

During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) almost 40,000 men and women from fifty-two countries, including 2800 from the U.S., traveled to Spain and joined the International Brigades to fight fascism. The U.S. volunteers served in various units and came to be known collectively as the Abraham Lincoln Brigade.

The documentary is the story of the African-American members of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade. Their history is our history and their stories continue to inspire us as we continue to struggle against the same enemies 80 years later.

We will never forget volunteers like Alonzo Watson, a World War I U.S. Army veteran (365th Infantry Regiment) who lived at 47 East 12th Street in Manhattan and was killed in action on Feb. 25, 1937 at the Jarama Front.  Or Charles Howard Lewis who lived at 817 Home Street in the Bronx and was killed in January 1938 in a mortar attack at Teruel.
