||Back in the days of
World War I, African Americans were looked down on and
discriminated against. But that wasn't going to
stop a group of two thousand men from fighting in the
war. A regiment of African American soldiers
from Harlem risked their lives to fight in
France. They fought along side of the French
Army but their legend goes beyond their fighting
ability. It was their music that made this group
of soldiers the legend.
