Fighting On Both Fronts: The Story of the 370th

episode

"Fighting On Both Fronts: The Story of the 370th" tells the remarkable, but little known, story of one of few African-American regiments to have fought in combat during World War I. They were America's unsung heroes - a group of men from Illinois, largely from Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood. They fought on two fronts - the war against the Germans and the war against racism and inequality. During a period when African-Americans tirelessly fought for basic human and civil rights, these fighting soldiers marched off to war to show their patriotism and loyalty to the U.S. But when they returned from war they realized that, despite their sacrifices, the country still denied them civil rights.
