African American history series
Nearly 370,000 black soldiers served in the military during World War I, and some 400,000 black civilians migrated from the rural South to the urban North for defense jobs. Following the war, emboldened by their military service and their support of the war on the home front, African Americans were determined to fight for equality. These two factors forced America to confront the impact of segregation and racism. In one of the few book-length treatments of the subject, Nina Mjagkij conveys the full range of the African American experience during the ""Great War.""</spa
