In honor of Black History Month, join Assistant Director of Education for Curriculum Gemma Birnbaum to learn more about the Homefront men and women who worked to industrialize the war abroad while fighting against racism at home.

See how ordinary workers in extraordinary circumstances became leaders in the fight for civil rights.
