Description:
"This commemorative issue of the Negro History Bulletin provides informative, insightful, motivational articles and reviews. It stands as a salute to all of the men and women who participated in World War II but whose "stories" have not yet been fully chronicled. It is especially to the veterans that this issue is presented as a tribute. Each offering herein focuses on some event or person representing a triumph, progress, and/or development. The unifying theme, African Americans and World War II, reminds us that most African Americans rallied to the nation's cause. The issue seeks to present a holistic view and achieve a balance by providing data about the war effort at home and abroad. At the same time, attention is given to the role of women as well as that of men."--
