“African Americans in Times of War,” commemorates the centennial of the end of the First World War in 1918, and explores the complex implications of this international struggle and its aftermath. Those very concepts provide a broad, useful framework for focusing on the roles of African Americans in every American war, from the Revolutionary War era to that of the present “War against Terrorism.” Times of War inevitably provide the framework for many stories related to African American soldiers, sailors, veterans and civilians. This theme
is filled with paradoxes of valor and defeat, of civil rights opportunities and setbacks, of struggles abroad and at home, of artistic creativity and repression, and of catastrophic loss of life and the righteous hope for peace. Celebrate current and former African American “Rugged Professionals” at the Library!
