THE GOOD FIGHT celebrates members of “The Greatest Generation,” African-American men and women who served their country even when their country didn’t always serve them.
Over seventy-five years after the D-Day invasion, WQED shares the stories of WWII veterans and war workers – men and women who fought the good fight — battling racism at home while fighting for democracy overseas. Written and produced by Chris Moore and Minette Seate, “The Good Fight” introduces viewers to these remarkable Americans who share the experiences that helped make history.
African Americans have played a role in our country’s defense since the American Revolution. World War II was no exception, with an estimated 1.2 million Black Americans serving on the home front and overseas.
