Fighting for the Right to Fight:
African American Experiences in World War II


Throughout World War II, African Americans pursued a double victory: one over the Axis abroad and the other over discrimination at home. Major cultural, social, and economic shifts amidst a global conflict played out in the lives of these Americans. Discover fascinating stories of struggle, setbacks, triumphs, and heroism of individuals who changed history in the Electronic Field Trip Fighting for the Right to Fight: African American Experiences in World War II.

In this interactive cross-country journey, your students in grades 6-12 will learn how the pursuit for both victory and equality shaped the story of World War II and transformed the United States for decades to come.
