Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II
March 21 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDTFree
Join us at Route 9 Library and Innovation Center for a historic documentary film screening of Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II with creator and director Professor Gregory S. Cooke and hear the inspiring stories of an untold generation of African-American war heroes.
Invisible Warriors features real pioneers – the first Black women to work in industry and government administrative service. They are hardworking underdogs of high character who do battle and win. They fled lives as domestics and sharecroppers to empower themselves while working in war production and U.S. government offices. These patriotic pioneers share their wartime memories, recounting their battles against racism at home, Nazism abroad, and sexism everywhere. They represent 600,000 women like themselves who overcame the Great Depression, Jim Crow, sexual degradation, and workplace discrimination to break gender and racial barriers.
