Flash Black Photo: African American WACs, World War II

At Black Then, we frequently see interesting photos that give us a glimpse into the past. They tend to show us a piece of black history that is often not covered in textbooks, in history classes, or shown in the media.

In a photo that we found on Black History Album , we see this great image called “African American WACs (U.S. Army), World War II” . This was taken in 1945 at Camp Shanks at the Transportation Corps staging area of the New York Port of Embarkation.

In Commemoration of the African American men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

    My young aunt Pearl Lockwood was a WAC. I loved to see her in uniform.
