First documentary:

America History World War 2, Black Soldier the Liberators

The unknown story of African-American battalions, this powerful film vividly records the experiences of the soldiers, who were utterly unprepared for the atrocities they witnessed, as well as the astonishment of the camp inmates - some of whom had never seen a black person before.

Some African American members of the US armed forces were liberators and witnesses to Nazi atrocities. The 761st Tank Battalion (an all-African American tank unit), attached to the 71st Infantry Division, US Third Army, under the command of General George Patton, participated in the liberation of Gunskirchen, a sub camp of the Mauthausen concentration camp, in May 1945.

After battling for freedom and defending democracy worldwide, African American soldiers returned home after the war only to find themselves faced with the existing prejudice and “Jim Crow” laws, which imposed “separate, but equal” segregation. 

This film will take you on a journey were you hear from survivors both blacks and Jewish.

The second documentary:

Emancipation Revelation, Revolution

A movie that look at the battle over civil rights and the role that both major political parties have played in it. The battle has always been about freedom, and still is. See this Award-Winning documentary about America History. As a nation divided, not along racial lines, but along issues of morality and values. What happens when blacks leave a Liberal Plantation and follow their own destinies?
