Honoring The History & Legacy of Black Veterans – Beyond the Scenes | The Daily Show

1668
Published on November 8, 2022

In honor of Veterans Day, we observe the contributions of Black service members like The Harlem Hellfighters and the Tuskegee Airmen. In this episode, Host Roy Wood Jr. chats with the cofounder of the Black Veterans Project, Richard Brookshire and the author of “Half American: The Epic Story of African Americans Fighting World War II at Home and Abroad,” Matthew F. Delmont. They discuss the racism and segregation Black soldiers have had to face in the military, how Black Veterans were excluded from GI Bill benefits, and how the GI Bill Restoration Act would be a step toward repairing the damage done to Black Veterans and their families.
