Comments on The Invisible Soldiers: Unheard Voices
“…a sterling testimony to the invincible courage and towering moral statue of African Americans as they fought two wars, one, against the Axis powers, the other against racism at home.”
Cornel West, Professor African American Studies
“… an extraordinary film that presents an important part of our nation’s history that has not been fully shown. The film gives some balance to the history of WWII that has been lacking in popular media and education materials.”
Doris Kearns Goodwin, Pulitzer Author and Historian
“The Invisible Soldiers: Unheard Voices is a rare and important contribution to preserving an accurate history of America… The film should be a requirement for schools throughout the nation.”
