During World War I, African Americans were asked to help make the world "safe for democracy" and contribute to the war effort, though they were denied equality at home. Hear from historian and MNHS Press author Peter J. DeCarlo about how African American Minnesotans endured racism, strived for equal treatment, and proved their loyalty to the United States at home and overseas—in segregated army units, the 16th Battalion of the Minnesota Home Guard, and the Red Cross.
