The World War I Experience for African American Soldiers

Many African American men saw World War I as an opportunity to gain respect through military service. They volunteered and were drafted, but even in war segregation determined where and how they served. Military historian Lt. Col. Roger Cunningham (USA-ret.) will explore the experience of African American soldiers in World War I. Pre-registration is required.

Tasting with Shafa Blends, a family-owned tea and spice shop in Gaithersburg at 3:00 p.m.; lecture begins at 3:30.
