Men of Bronze

MEN OF BRONZE
Directed by William Miles - 1977 - 60 min

This event is presented in conjunction with Black History Month.

Men of Bronze is the definitive story of black American soldiers of the 369th U.S. combat regiment and the 15th Infantry from New York, known as the "Harlem Hellfighters," who served with the French army in World War I.

The film uses photographs, interviews with veterans, and film from the French and American National Archives to recount the saga of the "Harlem Hellfighters," offering an inspiring tribute to these unsung heroes and an unforgettable look at World War I.

Following the film will be a panel discussion including:
