From: African Heritage
WWII recruitment film aimed at African Americans. The film opens with an African American minister in church telling his flock why they should join the armed forces to fight the Nazis. We see historical re-enactments of African Americans as valued participants in US armed conflicts dating from the American Revolution. The balance of the film deals with the African American experience within the present war effort, the conditions of their living and training, with special attention paid to the respect and dignity they will have. Directed by Stuart Heisler Written by Carlton Moss Music by Dimitri Tiomkin Choral arrangements by Jester Hairston Consultant: Brigadier General Benjamin O.
