'We Return Fighting: The African American Experience in World War I'

Daily, Now - June 14, 2020
From: 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM

We Return Fighting is a 4,200 sq. ft. temporary exhibition at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The exhibition has three sections, 26 themes, nine media pieces, a photography gallery, and an interactive engagement, anchored in nine African American historical luminary personalities. The exhibition mainly interprets life experiences of African Americans during the World War I era (1913 to 1920)—with interpretations spanning from 1865 to 1963. Though the foundation of the exhibition is the African American military experience from 1917 to 1919, the exhibition mainly offers an inclusive non-military experience focusing on the social, cultural, political, economic and intellectual lives of African Americans before, during and after World War I.
