We Return Fighting: The African American Experience in World War I
December 13, 2019 @ 8:00 am - June 14, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
We Return Fighting will be a 4,200 sq. ft. temporary exhibition opening at the National Museum of African American History and Culture on December 13, 2019. The exhibition will have three sections, 26 themes, nine media pieces, a photography gallery, and an interactive engagement, anchored in nine African American historical luminary personalities. The exhibition will mainly interpret life experiences of African Americans during the World War I era (1913 to 1920)—with interpretations spanning from 1865 to 1963. Though the foundation of the exhibition will be the African American military experience from 1917 to 1919, the exhibition will mainly offer an inclusive non-military experience focusing on the social, cultural, political, economic and intellectual lives of African Americans before, during and after World War I.
