Half American: A Memorial Day Forum at Concord Museum

May 21 @ 7:00 PM

Join Dartmouth College Historian Matthew F. Delmont for a forum on his award-winning new book Half American: The Heroic Story of African Americans Fighting World War II at Home and Abroad.  More than one million Black soldiers served in World War II in segregated units while waging a dual battle against inequality in the very country for which they were laying down their lives. Professor Delmont retells the history of the war centering the stories of Black veterans who have long been ignored.
