Taking place between 1950 and 1953, the Korean War is a significant turning point in military history because it marked the first time the US military merged two armies - one black and one white - into one unified fighting force. The presentation will explore the experiences of African American soldiers as they faced institutional racism, extreme weather conditions and determined, battle hardened Chinese and North Korean soldiers. At the end of the presentation, a short Q and A session will take place. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dr. Pope at firstname.lastname@example.org.
