In collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Boston, the Italian Cultural Institute New York, the Congressional Black Caucus Veterans Braintrust, and the Boston Public Library, we are proud to present a screening of Inside Buffalo, which tells the story of the 92nd Buffalo Division, the all African-American segregated combat unit that fought with outstanding heroism in Italy during WWII.

About the Film:

Reconstructing for the first time an important piece of African-American history, and placing it within the context of Civil Rights history, INSIDE BUFFALO searches out little-known aspects of the story, including details of the friendships forged between African-American soldiers and the Italian partisan fighters and villagers they liberated from fascist rule. Directed by Fred Kudjo Kuwornu.
