Jeffrey Sammons talked about his book, Harlem’s Rattlers and the Great War: The Undaunted 369th Regiment and the African American Quest for Equality, in which he recounts the first African-American regiment to fight in World War I, the 369th Infantry Regiment. The unit was dubbed the “Harlem Hellfighters,” a nickname the author said the regiment eschewed for the “Harlem Rattlers.” In his book, Mr. Sammons examines the regiment’s leadership, its actions in the field of battle, and the challenges the men faced following the war. Jeffrey Sammons spoke at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn, New York. close
