UDC  Premier Showing of the  Documentary -"Veterans of Color"

Veterans of Color is based on interviews with 31 African American women and men who served in America’s Military. Serving their country even when treated as second-class citizens— these women and men stormed the beaches of Normandy, flew as Tuskegee Airmen, and experienced the pain and chaos of the Korean and Vietnam Wars. The film captures personal accounts that help all Americans understand the challenges faced by African American veterans during their lifetimes. The documentary was produced by the Sarasota Branch of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History in collaboration with the Ringling School of Art & Design.
