"Unlike many Black soldiers who were limited to manual labor and custodial duties, the Harlem Hellfighters made it to the front lines. There were celebrated for their bravery, helping to change the perception of Black soldiers as inferior."
by Eric V. Tait, Jr.
Like the Tuskegee Airmen, who fought in WW 2, the Hellfighters deserve to be remembered for their heroism in the face of racist attacks in WW 1.
