Event Details

Meet a small group of ladies who represent the 600,000 Black women who fled lives as domestics and sharecroppers to work in factories and U.S. government offices during World War II. These patriotic pioneers share wartime memories, recounting their battles against racism at home, Nazism abroad, and sexism everywhere.
