Harlem Hellfighters Interactive Video Lesson

This video lesson would be used in a US History class to introduce a lesson on race relations in the United States during WWI. I would have students watch this video and answer the questions as homework to be able to come into class ready to discuss what they learned from the video, and kick off a broader lesson on African Americans and other minorities and their involvement in WWI. This is just a short assignment to start the lesson, but I imagine the full lesson would be supported by other readings and activities regarding racism and the effect stories like this had on the civil rights movement in the coming years.
