Veterans Day is a day honoring all servicemen and women who have served or are serving in the Military, Air Force or Marines to defend and protect our country.
Although many war heroes get honored on this day, not many know of the African-American heroes that fought in combat during World War I.
Fighting On Both Fronts: The Story Of The 370th is a documentary exposing and honoring the lives of the African-American regiments that fought to protect this country in World War I.
From Illinois, specifically Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood, these men fought two wars. The war against Germany and the war against racism and inequality.
