An African American soldier “beheaded” deep in the jungle, a volcano crater filled with hundreds of desperate refugees, and church bells tainted with horrific bloodshed in the howling wilderness... What went on in the islands of the Philippines between 1899 to 1913? “Black Lives & Brown Freedom: Untold Histories of War, Solidarity, & Genocide” vividly engages its readers with the almost forgotten experiences and bond between Filipinos and African Americans in the events surrounding the Philippine-American War.
Proceeds will go towards establishing scholarships for marginalized and impoverished bright young students in the Philippines.
