Grades 6-12 | National D-Day Memorial Foundation presents The African American Experience in WWII - Mar 24, 2023 12:10pm Eastern Time
About this event:
From the men and women in uniform to fundamental questions of civil rights at home, learn how the Second World War changed American society. Black Americans served in record numbers during the war, but usually in segregated units and in backstage roles like driving trucks and loading ships. Still, their service was a major contribution to victory—and helped inspire postwar changes in civil rights.
