Focus On: African Americans in WWII


By 1945, more than 1.2 million African Americans had served bravely in every theater of World War II, while simultaneously struggling for their own civil rights. Although the United States Armed Forces were officially segregated until 1948, WWII laid the foundation for post-war integration of the military.

As part of our February Focus On: African Americans in World War II, we have assembled oral histories from the Museum Collection, including Medal of Honor Recipient Vernon Baker and Tuskegee Airman Charles McGee, as well as images from the National Archive and more.
