Virtual Screening and Discussion: Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II

In recognition of Women’s History Month, join the Florida Historic Capitol Museum for virtual screening of the documentary Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II. Hear the wartime memories of African American women who were recruited to serve in US war production and government positions in the 1940s as 20 million women stepped forward to build the “arsenal of democracy.” Known as “Black Rosies,” their first-hand accounts detail battles against racism at home, Nazism abroad, and sexism everywhere. A conversation with film director Professor Gregory Cooke, moderated by Dr. Ashley Robertson Preston from Howard University, will follow the screening.

This program is part of the series complementing the temporary exhibit Rendezvous with Destiny: Florida and WWII. It is free to attend, but registration is required. Funding for this program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Florida Historic Capitol Museum.
