TOPIC: African American Soldiers in World War I and the Great Migration

Croix de Guerre Awardees from 369th Infantry Regiment “Haarlem Hellfighters,” 93rd Infantry Division

I had the pleasure of presenting a lecture, “US Colored Troops’ Decisive Role in the Civil War — and Black Confederates” to Lake of the Woods Civil War Study Group on Friday morning, August 23.
I am indebted to the gentleman standing in the rear, the group’s president Charles Brewer, for inviting me to address this distinguished audience a second time. I presented on my first book, War’s Cost, two years ago.
I’m glad to present on any topic from Collective Amnesia: American Apartheid, African Americans’ 400 Years in North America, 1619-2019.
