About the program
In World War II, over a million African Americans fought for freedom and democracy, in an army that was strictly segregated by race. These Black GIs fought to liberate Germany from Nazi rule, as racism reached unfathomable levels at home and their unit. Finding a "breath of freedom" in post-war Germany, Black soldiers experienced for the first time what it felt like to be treated as equals.
