Africans In American Military

Today, because of how the battlefield is portrayed, it can appear as an attraction more productive than our own homes and communities, especially to Africans in America. In that case, you have got to do what you have got to do.

As history has it, your time may be better served by loyalty in time of trial.

The Crisis says, first your Country, then your Rights!...While we have fought our country’s battles for one hundred fifty years, we have not gained our rights. No, we have gained them rapidly and effectively by our loyalty in time of trial.

That is, if we Africans in America, have gained any.

Even as most African Americans did not reap the benefits of American democracy—so central to the rhetoric of World War I—many still chose to support a nation that denied them full citizenship.

What were their experiences back home when the war was over?

Today, you and I only can answer that question.

We must not eat with them, must not shake hands with them, seek to talk to them or to meet with them outside the requirements of military service. We must not commend too highly these troops, especially in front of white Americans…”

Further, especially to any young African in America, thinking of joining the armed forces, this website is highly recommended.
