S05 E03: “Brown Babies The Mischlingskinder Story” with Regina Griffin

We were so pleased to welcome Regina Griffin, Jasmine Redden, and Romona Burns to the show to talk about Mischlingskinders (Brown babies) – the children of African American servicemen and German women.

Brown Babies: The Mischlingskinder Story reveals the tragic lives of biracial, bicultural children who were unwanted, ignored and forgotten by enemy nations.

Imagine being born in a place and time where racism and hatred run rampant. Your mother is white and German and your father is a black American serviceman. Brown Babies tells the painful and personal story of a forgotten piece of world history through the eyes of the people who suffered most: those who lived it.

Emmy award-winning TV News Executive Producer Regina Griffin is the director, writer and producer of Brown Babies. Regina and Romana are Mischlingskinders who talk candidly about their life experiences.
