During World War II, the approximately one million African-American soldiers who served found themselves fighting a war both abroad and at home. Following the war, many of these veterans played an active role in the struggle for civil rights. Their story is told in this powerful documentary narrated by Cuba Gooding, Jr. It features interviews with General Colin Powell, Congressman John Lewis, and Charles Evers, a World War II veteran, and brother of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers. A light lunch will be served.
