9780936340159: Soul Soldiers: African Americans and the Vietnam Era, Limited Edition

  • African American Vietnam veterans views of the Civil Rights era
  • Looks back at the horrors of war and complexities of race through oral histories, art, and poetry

    Even as African American men and women headed to Vietnam to fight for their country and to show their patriotism, they faced racism in the ranks, as did their families on the home front. This stunning book, which accompanies a traveling exhibit, looks at black life through the eyes of vets during the Civil Rights era by bringing together artifacts, poetry, fiction, oral histories, art, and riveting recollections that recall the horrors of war, the complexities of race, and the duality of African American life. With a foreword by Albert French, author of Patches of Fire, this book captures the spirit of the African American Vietnam experience and highlights the literary expression of Vietnam vets.
