This stunning book, which accompanies a traveling exhibit, looks at black life through the eyes of vets during the Civil Rights era by bringing together artifacts, poetry, fiction, oral histories, art, and riveting recollections that recall the horrors of war, the complexities of race, and the duality of African American life. With a foreword by Albert French, author of Patches of Fire, this book captures the spirit of the African American Vietnam experience and highlights the literary expression of Vietnam vets.
