“Brown Babies” Documentary Screens in Atlanta

ASC students who took German 340 “Afro-German History and Culture” will remember our interview with Lisa Dixon, an Afro-German woman who told us about her experience as child of a white German mother and African-American GI.

Lisa Dixon is also featured in the documentary “Brown Babies: The Mischlingskinder Story” by director Regina Griffin. This documentary focuses on the story of Mabel Grammar, an activist who after World War II began to arrange adoptions of so-called “mixed-race” babies from Germany to African-American families, and is scheduled for a screening at the AMC Parkway Pointe 15 on September 2, 7pm.

Here’s the trailer:
