Afro-American members of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade

"why I, a Negro, who have fought through these
years for the rights of my people, am here in Spain
today? Because if we crush Fascism here, [we] will
build us a new society - a society of peace and plenty.
There will be no color line, no jim-crow trains, no
lynchings. That is why, my dear, I am here in Spain."

Canute Frankson.
(to my dear friend).
Albacete, Spain, July 6, 1937.

And a song:

From Jefferson Airplane


some 30 years later.

for a day, like today.
