PODcast: SOUL SOLDIERS ~ Samuel W. Black Interview

Mr. Black is the Creator and Editor of the book and project. This is the FIRST in a series of interviews by Dave Rabbit with the people who were involved with the Soul Soldiers Project. Even as African American men and women headed to Vietnam to fight for their country and to show their patriotism, they faced racism in the ranks, as did their families on the home front.

Soul Soldiers: African Americans and the Vietnam Era is a new book that was published in November 2006 by the Senator John Heinz Pittsburgh Regional History Center. The book accompanies an exhibition of the same name on display at the History Center now through October 2007.

Soul Soldiers looks at black life through the eyes of veterans during the civil rights era by bringing together essays, poetry, oral histories, and riveting recollections that recall the horrors of war, the complexities of race, and the duality of African American life. With a foreword by Albert French, author of “Patches of Fire,” this 240-page book captures the spirit of the African American Vietnam experience and highlights the literary expression of Vietnam veterans.
