Sable Soldiers: African Americans during WWI, a public lecture by Keith Stokes

January 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Free


The lecture will introduce the public to a part of history that has not received its due recognition and study: the African American experience during World War I.

The inspiration for this lecture comes from Lt. Charles Henry Barclay of Bridgeport and New Haven, an officer with Company M, 372 Regiment, who along with his brother amassed news clippings, books, and documents from the Great War era that reflect the African American involvement both overseas and at home.
