African-American Reactions to War in Ethiopia, 1936-1941

Harris, Joseph E. (Fellow, 1985-86)

Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 1994

From the publisher's description:

Harris describes how African-Americans saw a symbolic microcosm of racial conflict and an analogy to their own struggle for freedom in Italy's military attempt to colonize Ethiopia in 1936-41, and how they organized protests, raised relief and support money, and even travelled to Ethiopia to join the resistance.
