Posted at 15:01h in Moving Pictures, Page and Screen
Everyone has seen the famous “Rosie the Riveter” posters made prominent during World War II (WWII). “Invisible Warriors: African American Women In World War II” brings to light the incredible efforts of Black Rosie’s who never got the recognition they deserved. Black Rosies worked in factories and the Navy yard, among other places working on the same task as their white counterparts. Their role was just as important as the ones we see in our history books; however, they are overlooked due to discrimination and racism. This memorable film showcases their contributions during WW II and tells their important stories.
