Program Description

A provocative documentary report of oral histories of black Vietnam veterans. What was it like to be black in America in the 1960s? If “bloods” were not marching in a non-violent civil rights demonstration, they were probably preparing a brother, a son or themselves to fight and possibly die in the Vietnam War. Part 1 of 2.
