Vets Museum exhibits Blacks in WWII

with one comment

Over 2.5 million African American men and thousands of black women served in all branches of service and in all Theaters of Operations during World War II.For many, their service in WWII was filled with irony: they were being asked to fight fascism and racism abroad, while they themselves endured racism at home.

The exhibit currently on display at the ITOW Veterans Museum in Perham shows how, despite extensive discrimination and segregation, these men and women met the challenge, persevered and served with distinction and honor. function photoFull (URL) { day = new Date(); id = day.getTime(); eval(“page” + id + ” = window.open(URL, ‘” + id + “‘, ‘toolbar=0,scrollbars=0,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=0,width=510,height=510,left = 137,top = 84’);”); }

This exhibit of 40 photographs is on display through February 29, 2008 at the ITOW Veterans Museum, 805 West Main, Perham.

  1. All vets, regardless of race, are true heroes. They deserve all the respect we can give them.
