Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II

banner14About the film: Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II features the powerful recollections of 600,000 Black women who fled lives as domestics and sharecroppers to empower themselves while working in war production and U.S. government offices. These patriotic pioneers overcame the Great Depression, Jim Crow, sexual degradation and workplace discrimination to break gender and racial barriers in employment. Black “Rosie the Riveters” were part of a “sisterhood” of 20 million women who built America’s “arsenal of democracy.” Without all of these women, the United States could not have won World War II.
