TOPIC AND THESIs:
African Americans and WWI
I am interested to find out if there was a drastic difference in how blacks and white were treated during the war. Although they were fighting the same fight I am sure there was segregation. In addition, I would like to research how African American women were treated back home since WWI had an impact on women rights. The way African American soldiers were treated when they came back home from war also interests me.
After the civil war, African American men were still not being rendered the same respect and treatment as their white American counterparts while serving in the first Great War. Even after fighting on the front lines, African American men not only faced with unequal treatment, the struggles of African American women were on the rise.
