Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, one of the most dominant players in basketball history, has also distinguished himself as a thoughtful writer on issues of race and social justice. This WWII history pays tribute to the black soldiers of the 761st. Though often the object of overt personal and institutional racism, these men took pride in their ability to participate in the American effort and served heroically in the Allies’ advance through France and Germany. The reading by Peter Francis James is measured and forceful. The presentation includes interviews with two members of the original battalion. One cannot help but be touched by the earnest faith and quiet dignity of men who believed in America before America believed in them.
