The Long Beach Central Area Association/MusicUNTOLD in partnership with  Cultural Alliance of Long Beach, Shades of Afrika, Sankofa Scholars Program-Long Beach City College, NAACP-Long Beach Branch and  Mayme A. Clayton Library & Museum will present FREE screenings (donation encouraged) of 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. Winner of the Best Documentary award at the 2011 American Black Film Festival, Brown Babies: The Mischlingskinder Story is a must-see, documentary that poignantly chronicles the lives of the biracial , bicultural children of African American GIs and German women. These children, placed in orphanages, were left to live without the support of their parents and their countries, Germany and the United States.
