The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and DC Public Library have the pleasure of inviting you to an in-person film screening and conversation about the documentary “Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II” on Saturday, December 11.

“Invisible Warriors” features real pioneers – the first Black women to work in industry and government administrative service. The film is an unforgettable conversation among a diverse group of African American “Rosie the Riveters,” who recount what life was like during World War II. They are hard-working underdogs of high character who do battle and win. They fled lives as domestics and sharecroppers to empower themselves while working in war production and US government offices.

Following a screening of the film, we will hear from the film’s director, Prof. Gregory Cooke, and other special guests.
