This chapter reveals the enduring social consequences of World War II images of African Americans. The narrative of American history was altered to include black contributions, and the result was to construct a new racial identity for African Americans that reshaped historical memory and re-articulated racial identity. This chapter also investigates the long-term effects of re-ordered racial images on national identity.
