African Americans in World Wars I & II Webinar

  • Center for Family History

This webinar presents a meticulously detailed exploration of the pivotal roles African Americans played in the monumental chapters of World War I and World War II. It delves into their diverse services, ranging from gallant frontline soldiers to indispensable support staff, and addresses the formidable challenges they encountered due to pervasive segregation and discrimination.

Our esteemed panel, featuring Dr. Alfred Brothers and Angela Walton-Raji, will illuminate how the valiant contributions of African Americans in these global conflicts laid the groundwork for the Civil Rights Movement. This discussion will accentuate their lasting influence on the crusade for racial equality and the consequent shaping of contemporary American society.
