Book: Dutch Children of African American Liberators

Mieke Kirkels and Chris Dickon’s book about the Dutch children of African American liberators was recently published in English. It illustrates how the complex racial relations in the US entered another dimension when African American soldieres were deployed overseas for the liberation of Western Europe, and tells the stories of the descendants of these ‘Black Liberators’. Earlier this year, the John Adams published a blog series about this topic.
