Fighting for the Right to Fight: African American Experiences in WWII

Friday, January 27, 2023

A traveling exhibition from the National WWII Museum in New Orleans. 

In the years leading up to World War II, African Americans experienced regular discrimination. To be Black was to know the limits of freedom in America.

Once World War II began, thousands of African Americans rushed to enlist, intent on serving the nation that treated them as second-class citizens. They were determined to fight to preserve the freedom that they themselves had been denied. This is their story.
