Rescued from the trash: Photos of African-American troops in WWII Europe

June 9, 2014 • Deirdre Black

I just stumbled upon this story published by the UK Mail Online in January 2012: Rescued from the trash: Photo album of fascinating WWII portraits of African-American troops in Europe | Mail Online.

The photos are precious since they serve as documentary evidence of the war, but perhaps more importantly because they provide coverage of the military service and experiences of African-Americans during the war, coverage which was sorely lacking in the segregated U.S. Armed Forces of the day.
