African American Soldiers of WWII
The poem I read today was by Langston Hughes called “Will V-day Be Me-Day”. I took particular interest in this poem because I too have wondered how the non-white military personnel were treated after returning from war. The poem is a great example of how the colored men of WWII probably felt throughout and after the war had ended.
You can read the poem here.
Below is a video similar to the poem describing the two wars African Americans were fighting at this time.
