Coastal Carolina University Project Focuses on African American Veterans

CoastalCarolinaCoastal Carolina University’s Athenaeum Press has announced that will produce a multimedia project on African American veterans. The project will examine the racial integration of the U.S. military, how military personnel were impacted by Jim Crow laws, and the military during the civil rights movement. The project is the culmination of a decade of research collecting oral histories, documents, photographs, and other mementos of African American veterans.

The project is under the director of Maggi Morehouse, an associate professor of history at Coastal Carolina University. Dr. Morehouse is the first graduate of the African diaspora studies program at the University of California Berkeley, completing her Ph.D. in May 2001.
