Brown Babies: The Mischlingskinder Story

"Brown Babies: The Mischlingskinder Story reveals a chapter of history few know about. The film presents an era when children born to German women and African-American soldiers were unwanted, ignored and forgotten." Please join us to view the film and meet a Los Angeles "Brown Baby" who will participate in a Q & A session following the film.

This is a "California Reads Program" co-sponsored by the Compton Library and the Black Resource Center.
