AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE MILITARY

America's First Black General
AMERICA'S FIRST BLACK GENERAL

Author:Marvin E. Fletcher, Benjamin O. Davis (Introduction)
Throughout an illustrious career that spanned the half-century from the Spanish-American War through World War II, Benjamin O. Davis proved that determination and diplomacy could overcome the barriers raised by racial bigotry.Today there are as many as 10,000 black officers in the army. In Davis's day there weren't more than two or three. As Marvin Fletcher's admiring but balanced portrait shows, this enormous change owes not a little to the persistent efforts and quiet dignity of Benjamin O. Davis. Davis helped "lay the foundation for the integration of the armed forces, the first major break in the wall of segregated America."
Born into the black middle class of Washington, D.C., Davis maintained a lifelong love for the military, despite the debilitating effects of the army's segregation policies. Such policies repeatedly denied Davis promotions and meant " safe assignments"—Liberia, Tuskegee Institute, Wilberforce University— designed to keep him from commanding white troops. It took thirty years from his enlistment until his promotion to colonel, and another decade before he became America's first black general

Lasting Valor
LASTING VALOR

Author:Vernon J. Baker - Ken Olson

Most Americans didn't learn of the heroism of these men, the last of the Buffalo Soldiers, until January 13, 1997. In the East Room of the White House President Bill Clinton, on behalf of a grateful nation, gave belated recognition to six men long dead and one tearful survivor of 77. This is the survivor's story. It centers on April 5, 1945, during the battle for Castle Aghinolfi in northern Italy. Vernon Baker knew he was being deserted when his white company commander announced he was going for reinforcements. Although Lieutenant Baker and his men were caught three miles behind enemy lines, and half of their comrades were dead, they did not turn and run. Part of the last segregated outfit to go to war for the United States, they knew they already had done the impossible - and were fiercely proud to keep going

Red Tails Black Wings
RED TAILS, BLACK WINGS

The Men of America's Black Air Force
Author:John B. Holway

They tell their stories of what they endured to become military pilots. The Red Tails, as the 99th was known, painted the tails of their planes red so that anyone who saw them would know who they were. Because the 99th never lost a bomber they were escorting to enemy aircraft, bomber crews who saw the Red Tails knew they had a good chance of getting home. Although the record of the 99th was outstanding, it was hidden by the prejudice of the time.
