"...a basic understanding of the critical role of African Americans in the war..."

Most Americans know little of the global significance of World War I (1914-1918) and the sacrifices made by millions to ensure the victory of the Allied forces over Germany. Rarer still is a basic understanding of the critical role of African Americans in the war to make the "world safe for democracy."

 “A Question of Manhood: African Americans and WWI” commemorates the centennial of the First World War, and celebrates African Americans who served as citizen-soldiers while they were still systematically denied full access to the promises of democracy.

The exhibit will feature rare photographs of soldiers from the Langmuir collection.
