May 28, 2016

369th harlem hellfightersTo commemorate the 100th anniversary of New York’s 369th Infantry, join them for a documentary film screening of Men of Bronze (1977), a film about the remarkable African-American men who fought in WWI. Directed by Harlem filmmaker William Miles, Men of Bronze is part of our Moving Image & Recorded Sound collection and projected on 16mm with the collaboration of the Library of Performing Arts’ Reserve Film & Video Collection.

Jeffrey T. Sammons, Professor of History at New York University, and John H. Morrow Jr. will lead the post-film discussion. They are the authors of Harlem’s Rattlers and the Great War, which tells the story of the 369th Regiment and the brave African-American soldiers who fought to convince America to live up to its democratic promise during the Great War. A book signing will follow.

For all free events, they generally overbook to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 to 30 minutes before start time, so they recommend that you arrive early.

Wednesday, June 29, 2016 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
