Join Linda Hervieux Via Zoom on Veterans DayJoin the Center Club via Zoom on Wednesday, November 11th at 9 AM as Linda Hervieux, a journalist, archivist, and researcher living in Paris talks about the untold story of the black battalion at D-Day.

Forgotten, The Untold Story of D-Day’s Black Heroes, At Home and At War by Linda Hervieux The injustices of 1940s Jim Crow America are brought to life in this extraordinary blend of military and social history – a story that pays tribute to the valor of an all-black battalion whose crucial contributions at D-Day have gone unrecognized to this day. One member of the 320th, Cpl. Waverly B. Woodson Jr. would be nominated for the Medal of Honor, an award he would never receive.

The Center Club are reserving a limited number of spaces for those who have served but are not Center Club members. If you are interested in “attending” on November 11, please contact Nancy Sloane at nsloane@centerclub.org.
