Abstract/Summary

With references to my current research on African American World War II archives and from the poetry of Gwendolyn Brooks I use special forum to assert that Willis’s successful negotiation of the public and private realms of representation of black Civil War soldiers offers an excellent model for research on black soldiers in U.S. military conflicts and their quest for recognition and equal treatment as soldiers, citizens and people.
