No Man’s Land: East Texas African Americans in World War I is a multimedia project—traveling exhibition and (eventually) online research tool—that draws attention to the First World War experiences of East Texan African Americans. Created initially to commemorate the centennial of World War I, it will document the thousands of black Texan men who served as commissioned and non-commissioned officers, infantrymen, cavalrymen, military policemen, mechanics, doctors, dentists, veterinary assistants, lumbermen, chauffeurs, laborers and stevedores, and in a variety of other roles.
It also seeks to tell the stories African Americans on the home front.
This is a great starting place to learn about Texas African Americans and their WWI experience.
