Be Woke Presents Black History in Two Minutes (or so)

Black soldiers have been an instrumental part of the armed forces since the Civil War. They put their lives on their line for their country and entered war to protect the very land that didn’t promise to protect them.

Despite experiencing inferior treatment while in combat, Black soldiers took the honor to serve seriously and accepted the call for battle no matter what was at stake. However, in 1948, President Truman desegregated the US armed forces, allowing Black soldiers to fight alongside their white counterparts. To this day, Black service men and women continue to serve, gain rank, and grow in the United States government.

In this episode of Black History In Two Minutes or So hosted by Henry Louis Gates Jr. — with additional commentary from Vincent Brown of Harvard University, Imani Perry of Princeton University, and Peniel Joseph from the University of Texas at Austin — we honor the sacrifices of the Black soldiers who courageously and consistently answer the call for war.

Black History in Two Minutes (or so) is a 4x Webby Award winning series.
