Double Victory in Black and White: What Digitized Historical Newspapers Reveal about the African American Experience of WWII
Drawing on his new book, Half American: The Epic Story of African Americans Fighting World War II at Home and Abroad (Viking, October), historian Matthew Delmont explores how Black newspapers led the Double Victory campaign during WWII, to secure victory over fascism abroad and victory over racism at home. Black newspaper reporters told the stories of the vital roles Black troops played and brought the triumphs and tragedies of the war home to Black readers. The Black press raised questions regarding race, democracy, and citizenship that remain relevant eight decades later.
