'La Brigada' is about the people of colour of La Brigada, the international brigade that fought in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939. It is also about Spain's impact on these individuals who supported, opposed, and observed the war. It is about those who struggled in a time vortex to save millions in a forgotten war, a forgotten country. The poems are the voices of the African-Americans, the words of the Hispanics, the songs of the Spanish, and the cries of the dying children.
