Historian Adriane Lentz-Smith examined how African Americans endured military service during World War I while simultaneously battling the racism of Jim Crow America. She argued that the experiences of soldiers serving in France and an increase in lynchings and racial violence at home spawned a more urgent fight for Civil Rights. Professor Lentz-Smith is the author of Freedom Struggles: African Americans and World War I. This talk was part of a day-long symposium at the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri. close
