Mistreatment of World War I Soldiers


Timothy McLaughlin PhD, professor emeritus Cazenovia College, and Vice President of the NAHOF Cabinet of Freedom, presents on the Black experiences of World War One, both home and abroad, which foreshadowed the more well-known history of the Second World War’s Double V campaign against Axis fascism and white American racism. This lecture looks at race relations during World War One, covering the struggle of the newly formed NAACP to react to the American entry to the war, the treatment of Black American soldiers in US training camps, their subsequent experiences overseas, and the racist violence of white Americans opposing Black Americans’ efforts to achieve economic progress.
