Interpreting the Past: African Americans in WWI

One of the main jobs of historians is to interpret the past by reviewing primary documents, scholarly secondary sources, and then creating an analysis of this research. After reading your text and reviewing the assigned materials, submit an analysis of the African American experience during World War I.

You might want to consider the following questions, but you are not limited to them: Did the segregation of troops in World War I help or hinder the American war effort? How did World War I affect race relations in the United States during and after the war? Were you surprised by the treatment African American soldiers received? Why or why not? Fully explain your answers and cite all sources as necessary.
