Some more Hellfighters links

The Encyclopaedia Britannica has recently added this piece about the 369th Infantry Regiment, with some previously unseen photos of the regiment and of James Reese Europe’s band..

And this piece was written by our colleague from the British Library, Francisca Fuentes – Francisca organised the Library’s symposium “Revisiting the Black Parisian Moment 1918-19” a few days before the first performances of the Harlem Hellfighters tour, which included a conversation between Jason Moran and Soweto Kinch about the project and its wider context.

And finally, a short piece about the learning project that Andy Grappy led for Serious, introducing young musicians in London, Cardiff and Berlin to the music of James Reese Europe, filmed at the Royal Welsh College of Speech and Drama during the day of the band’s performance there.
