These are some of the African American women of the 6888th Postal Battalion in WWII. The story of these women is almost non-existent. And I only heard of them through a PBS special years ago. Story of these women is remarkable. For not only where the black, but the were also women in the military, during a time where black people and women where second classes citizens in America, and where given “a place in society” and their own communities. But the defied these, and where part of a great military machine of that time. And they were doing an important mission, managing the mail between a war zone and home.
Where’s their block buster Hollywood movie?!!!
