The National Museum of African American History and Culture recently released a book called We Return Fighting: World War I and the Shaping of Modern Black Identity. In conjunction, the museum also has a temporary exhibit focusing on African Americans during the war. Museum curator and book contributor Krewasky Salter joined Howard University professor Greg Carr to talk about the collection of essays that inspired the book and exhibit. The two also discussed how the African American experience during what was then called “the Great War” served as a catalyst for the civil rights movement. close
