African American Lecture Series: “World War I: What is it Good for?”
Sep 19 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
African American Lecture Series: "World War I: What is it Good for?" @ Cullman Performance Hall in the North Carolina History Center | Memphis | Tennessee | United States

World War I was a transformative moment in African American history. Migration, military service, racial violence, and political protest combined made World War I one of the most dynamic periods of the African American experience. The war coincided with the Great Migration, one of the largest internal movements of people in American history.

Culturally, the impacts of the Great Migration changed the impact of life for those migrating to the North, Northwest and the Northeastern parts of the United States.  Observe as we trace those steps and the impact on the nation, African American History, and life during this period while overcoming these obstacles to better their plight in a new found period of victory over oppression.
