WWII DOCUMENTARY "The Negro Soldier"

Submitted by Ali Pomeroy, Lumiere Productions, New York City


WWII Veterans: do you remember a film called "The Negro Soldier"?

Documentary producers would like to talk with you.

Lumiere Productions is producing a public television series that traces the history of documentary film. One crucial episode explores the 1944 film "The Negro Soldier."

The first US army training film to depict African-American servicemen favorably, "The Negro Soldier" was mandatory viewing for all soldiers and was released in 5000 cinemas after the war. Criticized by some as mild, it is viewed by others as a landmark in the struggle to desegregate the military.

To tell this story, we need to hear veterans' accounts -- both
positive and negative -- of seeing this film. If you are willing to share your memories of "The Negro Soldier," please contact us.

Thank You,

Ali Pomeroy
