Cecilio Binn, T & L host and- History of Blacks Combating Fascism; Paul Robeson 

As William L. Katz explains in The Lincoln Brigade: A Picture History, “Most Lincolns were activists and idealists who had worked with and demonstrated for the homeless and unemployed during the Great Depression. They were poets and blue-collar workers, professors and students, seamen and journalists, lawyers and painters, Christians and Jews, blacks and whites. The Brigade was the first fully integrated United States army, and Oliver Law, an African American from Texas, was an early Lincoln commander.”
