    Very cool powerpoint about racism/segregation of African-American soldiers during World War II. I just read today that de Gaulle wanted French troops to be the first to march into Paris and one of Eisenhower’s aides (I forgot which one) said they all had to be white. Now isn’t that sad?

    • Thank you for the feedback. Yes, the history of discrimination is sad. However, I believe that these issues and histories need to be shared and discussed. Hopefully, our society will continue to foster multi-cultural respect. The chore is unfinished, but looking back, we have come a long way.
