#RichardWright saw parallels between oppression in Spain under the Franco regime and his own experience as a Black American; “another proof, if any is needed today, that the main and decisive aspects of human reactions are conditioned and are not inborn.” #PaganSpain #BlackVoices https://t.co/HfWzELK3qY

El 10 de junio de 1936 El Sol publicó la última entrevista de #Lorca, realizada por su amigo y dibujante LLuis Bagaría: "Yo soy hermano de todos y execro al hombre que se sacrifica por una idea nacionalista por el solo hecho de que ama a su patria con una venda en los ojos". https://t.co/bRsCAx2TOf

In his last interview before he was executed, #Lorca said art should serve the community, especially in difficult times. “En este momento dramático del mundo, el artista debe llorar y reír con su pueblo.” https://t.co/yWtJw0Fq2K

New Correspondence out today: "There is a strong movement to decolonise global health. We must not let debt repayments become a mechanism through which the #COVID19 crisis strengthens the influence of external forces on low-income countries." https://t.co/50Nqhv8xYM

1948 FBI report from an earlier time when an antifascist movement was declared "an actual menace to the security of the United States." Americans who supported the Republic in Spain's Civil War were pursued for decades after by their own government. https://t.co/e325rh6XXd https://t.co/Bv9ZQzjHh4

When organizers of 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympic Games signed the US Smokeless Tobacco Company as a sponsor, the IOC in Geneva opposed the deal as conflicting with the "Olympic idea." But it was too late to stop it. https://t.co/UwVF16rItL @TC_BMJ #1980OlympicGams #LakePlacid https://t.co/WSAKpcUe9F

1962 film 'Walk on the Wild Side' ('La Gata Negra' in Spain) based on Nelson Algren's novel, with a breakout role for a young Jane Fonda as Kitty Twist. The old Spanish version has some odd translations. Kitty's "You're cute" appears in subtitles as "You are intelligent." https://t.co/vRaJuD9A42
