        February 1, 2011
        The history of African Americans and the military is complicated by blacks efforts to fight for recognition as citizens to be able to serve in the military as well as the rigors of fighting overseas once in the military. Morris, the grandson of two decorated army officers, offers a sweeping look at the history of American military service by African American men and women. He includes profiles of historic figures, including Crispus Attucks, the first man to die in the American Revolution, and Harriet Tubman, who served with the Union during the Civil War, as well as profiles and interviews with more contemporary figures in the military, including the Tuskegee airmen; Lieutenant James Reese Europe, who introduced jazz to Europe during his service in WWI; and General Colin Powell, who served in Vietnam and later became the first black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and first black secretary of state. Morris draws on archival material to present personal stories of service and sacrifice, along with illustrations and photographs that add to the appeal of this book.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2011, American Library Association.)
