Black History Month: Bookwitty features FORGOTTEN

The British edition of FORGOTTEN

Bookwitty and journalist Olivia Snaidje featured FORGOTTEN: The Untold Story of D'Day's Black Heroes for Black History Month, and an interview with Linda Hervieux. Smaidje writes: "The fruit of nearly six years of research, Forgotten: The Untold Story of D-Day's Black Heroes is a compelling history of an all-black battalion and its men who went unrecognized until now. It is also a frank account of 'a white woman from Massachusetts' educating herself about the African American experience. And it is above all, the sobering story of the United States, the "Jim Crow" laws that enforced segregation from the 1880s into the 1960s, and a reminder of the shocking racism that permeated the lives of African Americans at the time; a reality unresolved today." Click here to read the interview.
