369th Infantry

Historical Description []

The Harlem Hellfighters were the most renowned African American infantry unit during World War I. Most recruits were from New York City, but many came from other parts of the U.S. to do their part for the war effort - and also to show that African Americans were worthy of respect as citizens who responded to their country’s call. At the start of the war, the unit was renamed to the U.S. 369th Infantry Regiment and deployed into labor roles, but they would soon have their chance to fight when a desperate France requested soldiers from the U.S. to aid their depleted forces. They would enter the trenches in France on April 15, 1918, and for months, the Hellfighters manned the frontline against the Germans. In May of that year, two of their men earned the coveted Croix de Guerre from France for their bravery, and the regiment became known as one of the toughest in the army.

However, upon returning home, the men who had fought and died to make the world “safe for Democracy” found themselves no better off than when they had sailed for France. Particularly in the states of the old Confederacy, black veterans were seen as a threat to the racial status quo given their military training and battlefield prowess. During the “Red Summer” of 1919, these veterans were often targeted by white mobs who killed hundreds of African Americans while police refused to intervene. It would take another half-century before African Americans were given equality before the law.
