Story of black WWII troops airs at research library

FORT LAUDERDALE — The 2000 documentary The Invisible Soldiers: Unheard Voices will be screened 3:30 p.m. March 21 at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC), 2650 Sistrunk Blvd.

The Invisible Soldiers tells the story of African-American service in World War II. Historian Doris Kearns says the film gives needed balance to the history of World War II that is lacking in popular media and education materials.

More than one million African-American men and women in uniform gave their loyalty, blood and lives to protect a country that denied them the very freedoms for which they were fighting. The film features interviews with service members who speak candidly of their accomplishments under conditions of racism. The Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame named the film winner for best documentary.
