A Distant Shore: African Americans of D-day

About 2,000 African-Americans were among the Allied troops who stormed Normandy's beaches on D-Day.  Many more came ashore later.  They were given little credit at the time and faced ongoing discrimination when they returned home. 

An Emmy-nominated documentary about their participation was finally made, and broadcast by the History Channel, in 2008.  This is a clip from that work, entitled A Distant Shore:  African Americans of D-day.
