Double Victory: African Americans in WWII Webinar I

The National WWII Museum celebrates Black History Month with a FREE teacher training webinar, titled Double Victory: African Americans in WWII. Explore the triumphs and challenges experienced by African Americans on the battle fronts and on the Home Front. Meet Pearl Harbor hero Dorie Miller, the Montford Point Marines, the Tuskegee Airmen, and the seven African American Medal of Honor recipients.  Learn about A. Philip Randolph’s push for racial equality in war factories and in the barracks and trace the historic path from Roosevelt’s Executive Order 8802 (establishing the Fair Employment Practices Committee in 1940) to President Truman’s Executive Order 9981 (desegregating the military in 1948). FREE classroom-ready lesson plans available to download at the end of the webinar.
