Purpose and Scope
The intent of this site is to provide access to resources for researchers and other persons
interested in the history of African-American involvement in the Vietnam War. "Involvement"
is defined as those who served and those who protested. Although this
site represents a sizable collection of full-text articles, papers, other documents
(including government documents), Web links, sound files, photographs, speeches and poetry,
the majority of the site consists of annotated bibliographic citations.
Thank you to everyone who assisted in the creation of this site. Thanks to Erika W. for
graciously providing her design abilities and making the site look and work better than I
envisioned it years ago. I'd also like to thank the following libraries for one reason or
